Peter, a well-known social capitalist and community enthusiast, is passionate about community and economic renewal. In this workshop, Peter will help you to be able to identify strengths and assets within your own communities. Peter's approach is to 'work from within' rather than top down, a process that aids communities and local economies in learning to invest in themselves, ideas, assets, capabilities and resources.

Volunteer Recognition Tool is Now Live!
 
Volunteer Dufferin would like you to know that Volunteer Canada , in partnership with Investors Group, has developed a quiz that will help your organization plan meaningful and effective recognition activities for your volunteers.
 
Quiz results will describe a volunteer's language of recognition. Some may prefer heartfelt hoorays or receiving goodies and gifts. Some may like to meet and mingle, while others could be inspired by formal applause.

  Habitat for Humanity in Dufferin

Habitat for Humanity Wellington Dufferin Guelph envisions a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to call home. But how do we get there?

We start with our community
 
As we continue to plan for a large-scale build in Dufferin , we look to our community for support. At Habitat for Humanity, support comes in many forms.
  • Shop at the Orangeville ReStore, or donate your gently-used furniture, appliances and more. Learn more here.
  •  Volunteer with us! Our volunteers are the core of our organization. Our goal is to deliver the Ultimate Volunteer Experience by offering a worthwhile, meaningful, and rewarding opportunity. Learn more about our opportunities here.
  • #PartyHardforHabitat: This September, we're hosting our first ever Ultimate Habitat House Party in Dufferin! Find out more about tickets, sponsorships and more by emailing brenda@habitatwdg.ca
Building a whole village is not an easy task, but with your support and engagement, we will continue to build more. With every brick we lay, we know we are building homes and building the future of community - our community.
