Our Volunteer Network

The core of our mission is to serve the people who live, work, and play in Columbia Heights. We want to help people in our neighbourhood connect their stories, history, perspective, struggles, and passions. The residents in our neighbourhood help our local businesses and community organizations grow and thrive.

Because people are the core of our mission we are launching a volunteer network. This network will consist of people from and around our neighbourhood who share our values of diversity, service, character, compassion, and unity. By creating opportunities for people to connect and get to know their neighbours and neighbourhood better we believe we will be able to better serve our community and support our local businesses.

Starting in February 2016 we will be conducting a resident survey with the goal of getting community feedback about the kind of events, services, and opportunities that interest them most. People drive what we do the data backs up that mission.

We have a lot of fun planned for our volunteers including:

  • Monthly Happy Hours
  • Mystery Neighbor Dinners
  • Cultural Exchange Dinners
  • Neighbourhood Cleanups
  • Volunteer Nonprofit Matching
  • Community Meetings
  • Neighbourhood Mapping
  • Meet-ups and More!
