Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into water, the actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects.

Dalai Lama

Our vision is to see a growing movement of change-makers. Movements by nature are dynamic and often spontaneous. They do not do well with lots of control. They are most often organic and erupt when and where they see fit.  So while our vision involves movement, our day to day work most often sees us serving vulnerable and marginalised people. It is at the point of our contact that we follow clear and well thought out procedures and policies.  Ensuring the provision of the highest level of care is our priority concern. There are many opportunities:

Engage

Adventure4Change is looking for enthusiastic, passionate and dedicated volunteers to assist with our programs and events. A full list of programs and events for children and families can be found on the Better Beginnings Waterloo website.

Action Team

Community members are invited to be part of our action team to speak into and help in the planning and execution of programs and events. Members act as a resource for A4C staff in implementing quality family programming.

Youth Initiatives

Building healthy mentoring relationships is a key part of our youth programs. At least 8 months of commitment is required. Sunnydale Connect runs on Thursdays from 6:15 - 8:30pm at The Hub.

Summer Activities

Throughout July and August, volunteer activities are available that focus on physical health, nutrition, music, art, science, technology, drama and culture. Lead a group of 6-12 children in activities or run a station.

Learn

We prepare people to assume roles of leadership. We operate with a highly experiential approach to development, one that reinforces the importance of hard work, compassionate living and an inspiring life, while avoiding the creation of unhealthy dependencies.

Change-Leader Initiative

Each person posesses strengths and abilities that must be used for the betterment of others. This is what opens the doorway to life’s greatest and most rewarding adventure. Every person involved with us, starting with the youngest, has the opportunity to be guided through a change-leader development continuum which includes mentoring, experience, feedback, opportunity, group interaction and study 

Resonate

A Journey into Transformation

A4C provides solutions to the problems that impact our world.  We are confident that change is introduced and promoted through the lives of people who take responsibility for their role in the process. Within each of us lies both the desire and the ability to make a positive difference in our world. Resonate is designed to equip people with the skills and understanding required to become integral to this process.
