Prospect’s Environmentors program focuses on developing leadership skills through volunteerism. This year Prospect has partnered with Glenbow Elementary School (http://glenbow.rockyview.ab.ca/) in Cochrane, Alberta. Clients and students work together to gain a better understanding of the environment through nature hikes and caring for a community garden. Stay tuned throughout the summer for more updates about this program!

Growing Employment Skills

Prospect Outdoor Pursuits clients are collaborating with Grow Calgary this summer through the weekly Horticulture program. Grow Calgary grows fresh food for Calgary’s compassionate food access agencies with a goal of ensuring all Calgarians have access to healthy, local food. Prospect clients have worked hard over the last weeks to prepare a garden plot which we will take responsibility for throughout the growing season. We transplanted our first plants into the garden this week. We are looking forward to growing some vegetables and employment related skills in the weeks to come!
