The ROC is looking for individuals who would be interested in serving on the ROC Board or on any of our sub-committees as well as volunteering in any other capacity. The new Board will be voted in during our Annual General Meeting scheduled for June 17th, 2013 at 7pm at the Prospect Road Community Centre.
The Resource Opportunities Centre was originally established in 1998 as the Terence Bay and Area Community Access Program (C@P). This program's focus was to build stronger communities through technology (www.nscap.ca). The site for the computers was located in the Terence Bay Elementary school and continues to provide public access to computers and the internet, computer training to people of all ages, and children's recreational programs. A satellite of this is set up in the Prospect Road Community Centre.
From this program, the Resource Opportunities Centre grew to providing children's camps and activities financed by grants and run by volunteers. This has grown to providing a second physical space – the Prospect Community Centre, an organization that is financed through self sufficiency and grants. As a result of these programs there have been more than 100 employment positions created (mainly part time youth) and numerous community projects undertaken. The most significant of which (before the Community Centre) has been the Building Bridges project, 2005-2008, through which www.prospectcommunities.com was created.
We currently have space available on the ROC Board and are looking for individuals with skill sets and experiences such as yours, to enrich our effectiveness as a Board. If at this time, you are not able to dedicate yourself as a Board Member please consider volunteering in another capacity. We have many sub-committees, as well as programs that could use your skills. If you would like to receive further information, such as Board by-laws, governing policies, responsibilities of a Board Member, financial statements, etc. or have any questions, please contact me at 852-1250 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you on June 17th, 2013 at 7 p.m.
Current Board Member of Resource Opportunities Centre
