Lake Trail Neighbourhood Connections (LTNC)
“We connect and collaborate with Lake Trail School, residents, and agencies/organizations toward a fun, safer, healthier community.”
Lake Trail Neighbourhood Connections was formed through a grass-roots initiative, arising out of the parent advisory committee at Lake Trail School who successfully applied for a grant to explore opportunities for shared use of the school from the School Community Connections program administered by the BC School Trustees Association and Union of BC Municipalities in 2009.
This visioning and capacity building project was used to a) engage residents to identify needs, issues and opportunities to improve the neighbourhood, b) facilitate connections between Lake Trail School, agencies, and residents, and c) assist residents to form a local neighbourhood group. These goals have been created through a number of initiatives including our Community Garden, Public Safety Initiative, Neighbourhood Forum Series, Community Programs Calendar, and Youth Services Projects which lead our agenda.
LTNC is a registered non-profit society with a mission to:
- Provide educational, recreational and cultural programs for children, youth, adults and seniors
- Build community through knowledge-sharing and community events
- Encourage greater use of the school through collaboration
- Celebrate a vision of the neighbourhood with Lake Trail School at its heart
