LET’S SPEAK UP! : VOLUNTEER DEVELOPMENT AND COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP PROJECT FOR THE DTES

Building a model which provides access to the 260 agencies in the DTES involves five discrete components. Components include: 1. Creating a personalized access program for interested community members. . 2. Ensuring that boards are resourced to uphold their commitment by ensuring a participant’s basic needs can be met as well as providing the tools and services necessary to remain involved on the board (child care, transportation, food, training, etc.) 3. Develop Board “twins” where long-term members partner with community members and both can help train other board members and create accommodations for all members in a spirit of inclusion and respect. 4. Develop an inclusive leadership charter, willingly signed, promoted and implemented by all DTES agencies 5. Create affiliations with legal and policy organizations to effect policy and legislative change that will remove legislative barriers that impede community engagement.
