The Hinton Friendship Centre
Society is looking to engage new/existing/past volunteers. In 2020 we will be
hosting the Provincial Annual General Meeting for Alberta Native Friendship
Centre Association. We will have delegates from over twenty Friendship
Centre’s. This will be a great opportunity for individuals to get know what we
do as Friendship Centre’s and meet new people from all over the province.
Friendship Centres offer a variety of programs and services in a
culturally appropriate manner, practising an open-door policy where anyone,
regardless of race, religion, income or nationality can access programs.
Visitors to Friendship Centres can often find access to referral
and advocacy services, cultural programs, education and training, employment
counselling, health programs, justice programs, children and youth programs,
recreation programs and economic development. Friendship Centres also offer
language training, entrepreneurial training, skills development, computer
training, work site placements, nutrition programs, healing circles, alcohol
and drug counselling, summer camps, day care centres, youth peer counselling,
youth drop in centres, organized sports and leagues, wilderness training and
facility rentals. Many Centres also have arts and crafts shops and organize
pow-wows and other events throughout the year.
Friendship Centres provide over 1.3 million client contacts
across Canada within the programs and services offered every year.
We are looking for committee people, volunteers for the event and people to assist during the up and coming months. If you are interested in this opportunity, please forward your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 780-865-5189 for Yvonne. We are looking forward to working with everyone who is interested in this great opportunity.
