2019 Community Action Projects

Project: Finding a Way Home (2018 - 2019)

Community Partner: Our Place Society

Teams: Home, YIMBY, Majic, Spark 

Leadership Victoria's 2018-2019 cohorts were engaged with Our Place Society to create possibilities for Greater Victoria’s most vulnerable citizens. The cohort conducted an asset survey and mapping of Greater Victoria to identify opportunities for temporary supported modular housing. Each team examined case studies from around the world sharing successful projects that may be re-created, or lessons learned to ensure successful projects. Case studies and stakeholder analysis will assist in creating a model of community readiness to ensure accessibility to needed services and recommendations for supporting a welcoming community.

Breakfast at Our Place Society

Leading up to the leadership launch, students chose one of three dates to serve breakfast at Our Place Society. Each student and some of our coaches and facilitators participated, to grow our understanding for the people we may be helping. The values of love and compassion are embedded into the facility.
