Volunteers needed for North

on Wed, 05/07/2008 - 22:58

Frontiers Foundation is seeking volunteers to work in the north of Canada either in the schools or with the youth of the communities. These projects are scheduled to begin in early September and continue for the school year, through to the end of June. We will be looking for volunteers to work as tutors and teaching assistants in schools throughout the Northwest Territories and we expect to have education projects in the communities of Inuvik, Wrigely, Hay River, Fort Simpson, Nahanni Butte, Trout Lake, and Fort Smith. We also have several projects that involve our volunteers putting on different programmes for the community youth and we will have the recreation projects in Tsiigehtchic, Fort Good Hope, Wrigley, and Trout Lake.

We will be accepting new applications through to the end of May for our projects starting in September and the sooner that you get your application in to us the better.

In March over 150 community members participated in the Leadership Forums hosted by Frontiers Foundation. The OKIMA Leadership Forums provided the community with access to individual members and organizations they would not normally work with and was a beginning to learning how to work together in partnership to address community needs. The participants were eager to work together to explore new ways of working together from a common thread: from a cultural framework. This community approach to working together was successful and in the future should have government representatives actively participating in the workshops, learning and working together in mutual partnership building.

Operation Beaver Celebrates 40 Years of Volunteerism and Housing Construction

on Wed, 10/20/2004 - 20:01

Toronto, Ontario --- Operation Beaver celebrated its 40th anniversary on June 25, 2004. Operation Beaver is a part of Frontiers Foundation, a Canada-wide Aboriginal organization based in Toronto. Over the past 40 years, Operation Beaver has worked in the fields of construction, community development, education, and recreation.

Operation Beaver began 40 years ago with a single project, sponsored by the Canadian Council of Churches. A group of 22 young people from across Canada and around the world gathered in Split Lake, Manitoba, then a small fly-in aboriginal community. Over the course of the summer, they built a church, assisted by numerous local volunteers. Since those days, Operation Beaver has grown - it is now an independent, secular organization, working mostly on housing construction and renovation, and education projects.
