Do you have a program that fits Umatter or one of the areas?
You can develop your own Umatter program as long as it meets these learning outcomes. It’s important that each program, bulletin board or project include the Umatter messages to be effective and helpful. The Umatter website and Facebook page both have great information and videos on each area, as well. Contact your Umatter representative for more details or firstname.lastname@example.org.
