Mission Statement

People with disabilities have many skills to share with the world but in many cases need someone's help so they can be realized. The ConnecTra Society is a non-profit organization that is looking for volunteers to serve in a mentoring role to people with physical disabilities. The position will involve working with the ConnecTra Staff and meeting with clients one-on-one to help them determine their goals and assist in achieving them. This can include employment, volunteering or recreational opportunities. This is a six-month project we need volunteers throughout this six-month project. We are looking for a half-day-a-week commitment from people with experience in business, government or the non-profit sector. If you'd like to mentor a person with a physical disability, share your knowledge and help others reach their goals, then the ConnecTra Society is looking for you. Knowledge is a wonderful thing to share; share yours!

Description

The ConnecTra Society provides outreach services primarily for mobility and physically impaired individuals in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. It serves as a connecting agency, linking people with physical disabilities to activities and programs that will, over time, allow them to grow, gain confidence and become increasingly more active and involved in community life.

ConnecTra aims to get all people with significant disabilities living in the Lower Mainland as socially active and involved as possible, setting the stage for many to consider training, education and work.

This includes: workshops and presentations covering recreational, employment and lifestyle issues; offering one-on-one recreation planning sessions; and becoming a clearinghouse for information about available options.
