Dunham House Model Of Community Outreach
Our goal is for our residents to learn the benefits of community volunteering and to experience the benefits of it firsthand.
- To learn to cooperate and collaborate with others
- To learn understanding and compassion for others
- To learn to follow instructions
- To learn new skills and understanding of bicycle mechanics
No matter how big or how small, volunteer organizations require one to work collaboratively with others towards a common goal. Working harmoniously with others who may not have the same understanding or intellect requires patience and graciousness; often a learned life skill.
Volunteer participation is an important part of feeling part of the community and neighbourhood and there is a multitude of ways to volunteer!
Free Wheeling (Pleins Rayon) ’s mission is the positive social inclusion of individuals for whom finding their place in society is a challenge. Opportunities to develop socio-professional skills through social economic projects and through various therapeutic recreation activities like working with bicycles helps to promote confidence and understanding.
