Amigos in the Community!

Breaking Barriers to Inclusion within the Community through developing meaningful friendships!

What is the Amigos Community Program?

The Community Program is for adults (aged 18+) with or without disabilities who are facing barriers to inclusion. Participants are paired up with volunteer Connectors who share mutual interests and goals. Pairs meet up regularly to participate in leisure and recreational activities. Lasting relationships are built, and connections are made in the community.

  • Young adults with barriers to inclusion benefit from the intentional relationships of peers in their community.
  • Young adults who would like to volunteer to take on leadership roles by connecting with peers learn their efforts do make a difference in creating inclusive places.
  • It's fun AND accessible!

Kadir & His FIRST FISH!

What is amazing to hear is all the "firsts" that Khidir has been able to experience with a friend as a result of the program. Both Khidir and Calvin played Frisbee golf for the first time in July and really enjoyed it! Calvin took Khidir fishing and he caught his very first fish! We are proud to be partnered with New Canadians Centre and Fleming College. - "Khidir's story, published in the Fall 2017 Amigos Newsletter
