Building Neighbourhood Third Sector: A Holistic Organizational Governance Development and Training Tool Kit

This project supports a partnership between the Association of Neighbourhood Houses of Greater Vancouver and the School of Social Work and Family Studies of the University of British Columbia. It aims to produce a toolkit and training package for neighbourhood houses which are neighbourhood based, multi-service non-profit organizations. The purposes of this project are twofold: to enhance the governance and program capacity of existing neighbourhood houses and to provide a hands-on, step-by-step manual for neighbourhood residents, resident groups and emerging organizations interested in establishing neighbourhood houses in their own communities. It is believed that the products of this project will be of great use, benefit and value to the thousands of neighbourhood houses in Canada and around the world.
