What has been the impact?


"The BECOMING A COMMUNITY BUILDER  Program  presents a tremendous community and economic development opportunity  for the Ponoka area. This program allows our rural community to offer  free personal and professional development to our citizens; an offering  that provides a distinct competitive advantage for our youth, our  businesses, and our community as a whole." 


~ Mayor Rick Bonnett, Ponoka ~



Dog parks, libraries and bursaries...economic development initiatives, public art refurbishment and new philanthropic dollars...newly elected officials  and improved health and wellness programs....

BECOMING A COMMUNITY BUILDER has equipped citizens to confidently improve their corner of their Community.

If you would like to see an increase in volunteerism, greater  Community ownership and pride, increased business profitability, improved performance for yourself and those around you and the strengthening of your Community’s resiliency, then BECOMING A COMMUNITY BUILDER is for you and your Community.
