We hope that this page will provide resources to help you in your role as Mini Vinnies Coordinator.

Why did we put a password on the page? To encourage Mini Vinnies registrations. Registrations help us to keep up-to-date with teachers in charge and the locations of the Mini Vinnies groups. Plus, the more Mini Vinnies groups we have on record, the more support we will have to develop new resources.

If there are resources that you would like to see, please contact the Mission and Social Justice Coordinator, who appreciates all ideas and suggestions.

TIP – why not bookmark this page for easier access.
