Start Up Sponsor Team Training
9:30 am -11:00 am ET
Interested in helping a brand-new beginner get started in the GreySheet program? Join the Start Up Sponsor Team! We offer training every quarter (November, February, May, August) on the last Saturday at 9:30am ET for 90 minutes.
Every month, about 30 people find GreySheeters Anonymous for the first time but struggle to find a sponsor to explain the program, answer their questions, and start them off on their GreySheet abstinence.
The Start Up Sponsor Team is a group of GreySheeters Anonymous sponsors with one year of GreySheet abstinence who start off newcomers. The Start Up Sponsor sponsors the newcomer while helping them find a permanent sponsor.
