*Cancellations of Sponsored Workshops
There may be times when unforeseen circumstances arise and households cannot attend a workshop. In this event, a service fee of $20 will be required if a household needs to cancel an existing registration for a FREE (sponsored) workshop and move it to another FREE (sponsored) workshop date.  A minimum 5 day notice is required so we can reallocate your place to another household.   Also note, registration for a new workshop is not guaranteed and is subject to availability of space.

If less than 5 day notice is provided, households will be subject to a $40 registration fee (per household) for any subsequent workshops they register to attend (even if the workshop is offered at no cost).   A full payment of the service fee or registration fee MUST made to Model Cities upon completion of the workshop by the household and before a Certificate of Completion can be provided.
