FREE Leadership Training by ACE Communities – a Learning Provider

Posted by: in North West

Like many of you, volunteering is my passion along with life-long learning. I am driven to make my community a better place to live, play, grow and retire – a community I can be proud of.

I had the pleasure of hosting ACE Communities this past Monday (check out the website and Twitter for the pictures and discussions regarding this event – Thank you Janet for posting…) in Grande Cache at our “Ignite” Celebration. We had the honor of listening to Ian Hill a motivational speaker inspiring change in individuals, neighborhoods and communities. Town council, students and various community members heard his impassioned challenge to rise to the responsibility we all have to build a better community.

It was AWESOME! Ian is a dynamic speaker. His comments were not anything that we do not already know but his words had the motivation to “ignite” an entire community for change. I am revitalized to create a town that I want to live in and I know I am not alone.

Community leadership is about active, creative and engaged communities working together on a “shared vision”. Who better to lead a community towards positive change than VOLUNTEERS!

ACE communities is about building community capacity and community development. Here is just a partial list of learning opportunities for the month of November you as a learner can access by just a click of a mouse:
