The following short videos are offered to get a discussion going on what the potential benefits are for having a Community Hub / Neighbourhood House type facility in Valemount. There are no assurances that all or any of the examples outlined in the videos will be reproduced in the Valemount model, indeed some things are already being done. The examples are presented here to stimulate the questions, “Why don’t we have a public space like that?”, and “What can I do to make it a reality?”.
There is a brief description for each of the videos. A quick read will provide an “executive summary” type of overview. The discerning reader can tailor priority viewing to their own interest, or view each in turn for the full effect.
It is hoped that these examples will help community members, potential partners, funding organizations, elected representatives, and others to get on board.
Volunteerism is alive and well!
Community development is a determinant of health, and an economic engine. Community is inclusive. Participation is essential to a healthy and sustainable democracy.
