Cheers to Leadership Kitsap Team We-Ahm! Team We-Ahm helped to organize, facilitate, and host several gatherings with the Port Gamble S’Klallam community to determine the design for a Storytelling Area for a proposed Early Childhood Education Program Amphitheater.

The first event included a meal and an esteemed storyteller, Elaine Grinnell. Team We-Ahm also coordinated with the PGST teachers to ensure that student input was solicited. The teachers incorporated a day of storytelling into their curriculum and sought input from the students on stories that mattered. Team We-Ahm also held a bench making event to construct benches for use at the auditorium.

The amphitheater is constructed and the design of the storyboards is forthcoming from the artist. #LeadKitsap

Cheers to Leadership Kitsap Team Haberdashers! In partnership with Bay Vista Commons (BVC) staff and their residents’ council, the Haberdashers created a community “boutique, where residents could obtain their basic need items at no cost.

BVC serves over 70 residents, and approximately 80% of these residents are Medicaid clients receiving only $2/day to cover basic needs. The team collected in-kind and financial donations to provide the residents with sheets, pillows, towels, socks, and shampoo for the next two years, free of charge. The team identified a locking storage closet that would serve as the “boutique.” BVC staff will continue working with community partners to maintain an ongoing supply of donations. #LeadKitsap
