Joimove’s 2017 Year End Review
It’s the time of year when we all start to think about all that’s happened over the past 12 months and then look to the future and the hope that the new year will bring. 2017 was an amazing year of growth, community-building, and new initiatives for Joimove International. As such, we wanted to share a few of our highlights with you as we wish you all a wonderful 2018!
New Instructors Around the World
Joimove has always been an international organisation and movement, and in 2017 we continued to expand. New for 2017 we are proud to now have Joimove Instructors and Trainees in Malta, Germany, India, Spain, Ireland, North Cyprus, Virginia, Macau, Mexico, and China. We can’t wait to see where Joimove will go from here!
Live Training Events
While Joimove is known for its innovative online training programmes (the first of their kind in the field of babywearing dance!), in 2017 we also reached out to new communities and strengthened the skills of and bonds between existing Joimove Leaders through live training and business and leadership development workshops. Trainees and Instructors met to train and learn together across Europe and Asia. Live training events in Turkey and London, England are already scheduled for early 2018!
We are always proud of the efforts that our Joimove Leaders make to have a positive impact upon each of their communities and countries. In 2017, Joimovers in the UK, Ireland, Taiwan, Mexico, and Turkey held fundraising events in aid of local and national charities that benefit children in their regions. Well done everyone!
This year, Joimove will be supporting Lend with Care, Care International to help fund local projects on behalf of every instructor who joins Joimove in 2018.
The Joimove Bursary Programme
New for 2017/2018 is the Joimove Bursary Programme. This programme aims to bring the benefits of Joimove’s training, including leadership skills, health and wellness awareness, community building, business development, and specific programmes for helping vulnerable segments of the population to new communities around the world by offering training in Joimove’s programmes at little to no cost for scholarship recipients. More details will be available shortly.
2017 may have been a great year, but we can’t hold back our excitement for what 2018 will bring! Stay tuned!
