The Alberta Avenue Community League is continuing its exciting Neighbour Connect Project - Sharing meaningful social interactions, one block at a time.

 Our neighbourhood covers 100 blocks spanning 92-97 St from 111-122 Ave.The purpose of the project is to create opportunities for neighbours to come together, to get to know each other better, strengthen connections with each other, and become more engaged with the community.

Interns will work 75-100 hours  between April and September with our full-time Engagement Coordinators. A significant portion of the work will be on weekends. There is flexibility to get your hours completed more quickly if you have time to do so.

This project encompasses event organizing; engaging in conversations; data collection, inputting and analysis; and connecting people to their neighbours and neighbourhood resources. It is exciting, engaging and evolving! Join the team!
