The Centre for Community Leadership will be located in a park like setting on the corner of Chestermere Boulevard and Rainbow Road, adjacent to the skateboard park.
SYNERGY encourages and facilitates collaboration amongst all local grass roots organizations and aspires to create a model that other groups can follow to establish more space throughout the community going forward.
The benefits of this project are far greater than simply creating space, however. SYNERGY’s philosophy is deeply rooted in the premise that we can achieve much more by working in partnership than we can on our own. We intend to establish affordable space that we can share with a number of Not-for-Profits who will, in exchange, contribute to the operating costs associated with this new community facility. SYNERGY will both operate within and manage the facility, for at least five years.
The Centre for Community Leadership will be located in a park like setting on the corner of Chestermere Boulevard and Rainbow Road, adjacent to the skateboard park. The Centre for Community Leadership will be the first landmark that commuters see as they enter Chestermere while heading East on Highway 1A from Calgary.
The target date for opening this facility is July, 2016
- The Facility is 2280 square feet
- Office space (primarily occupied by the building managers, SYNERGY)
- Affordable event/program/classroom/meeting space
- Large public outdoor deck overlooking a park-like setting
- Youth Leadership Development programming
- Community gatherings, projects and leadership support
Opening the doors will require the support of our neighbours.
The City of Chestermere is providing the land on which to place the structure and is taking responsibility for the project’s development. To date, SYNERGY has raised over $400,000 towards accomplishing this project. Other local Not-for-Profits will contribute by providing Volunteers and materials to construct skirting, a deck and wheelchair ramp, as well as a number of other cost-saving construction tasks.
We are seeking private and business sponsorship partners to complete the funding package required for this facility.
Please thoughtfully consider financially supporting this unique cause.
