Join us for a Speed Friending Happy Hour to bring together friends and neighbors on Zoom! Meet new people in small groups for conversation.
Icebreaker questions make it super simple to get conversations going.
Don’t miss this opportunity to expand your social circle and meet some new people from a safe social distance via Zoom!
Whether you are a part of the NEXT Village community of members, volunteers or supporters, or you live in San Francisco and want to meet new people, join us for an evening of fun and getting to know your neighbors.
Consider this an excuse to get dressed up — shave, put on make up, or wear a different Zoom outfit for a change!
This Happy Hour, like most of our monthly events, is free and open to all.

Stress Busters workshops or discussion groups will alternate on Thursday every 2 weeks to help us get through the pandemic together!

In addition to workshops, each month they will offer an informal discussion group to provide a more interactive opportunity for us to share and discuss concepts from the workshops in more depth.
Join us to get personalized tips as well as a more in-depth understanding of how to apply the steps learned in workshops to your life. The 5 steps can be found at http://www.123dingsum.org/how-to-ding-sum
