The LCW Marketplace
A key event that allows you witness and actively participate in the LCW network is The LCW Marketplace – formerly Tuesday’s Together – This is not a marketplace where monetary transactions happen, instead in our marketplace people are coming to meet a need and to exchange what they have to offer. This space allows people to share, practice and enhance their skills, make connections that will improve their lives and the lives of those around them.
We do a few simple things at the Marketplace:
- New and Good – We share who we are, a little bit about why you are here and something personal about yourself.
- Conversation Circles – We talk about things that are important to us. Each month based on what people want to talk about we have a variety of options for conversations from savings programs offered by a financial institution to how to better support your kids in school. Anyone who comes to the marketplace is welcome to host a conversation.
- Mini-Marketplace – We make offers and requests. Everyone has something that they need and something they have to give. Employers may be looking to hire, non-profits may have services to offer, an English language learner may be looking for a conversation partner and someone may need to find a good plumber. All of this can happen in this space.
Come and do your business at The LCW Marketplace on the last Tuesday of every month.
