Community Centre Volunteers
Community Centres provide recreation programs and services to area residents through a cooperative partnership between community centre volunteers and City administration. Throughout the year, dedicated volunteers commit their time and energy to the operation of community centre facilities and programs. Volunteers provide enjoyable activities that are appropriate for people of all ages and interests and that often lead to the development of new skills and enduring friendships.
