Join the Applegrove Board

Applegrove is a multi-service community centre. For 40 years we’ve run programs, hosted meetings and events, mobilized and supported action on local issues, partnered with others, provided employment and consistently worked to make this community a great place to be.

We are looking for energetic and engaged people who want to:

 Learn about and contribute to their community

 Share their knowledge and expertise  Build community networks  Be part of a team that guides a local agency serving children, youth, adults and seniors  Help make the Leslieville and Greenwood-Coxwell community the best it can be

Being on a board is a great way to be involved in your community in a meaningful way. Board members are responsible for governing the agency, setting policy, identifying needs and setting strategic directions, managing finances, and generating revenue to support programs.

We are both an agency of the City of Toronto and an incorporated non-profit organization. Board members therefore sit on two boards: 1) a Board of Directors responsible for the whole organization, and 2) a Board of Management responsible for the City agency. The same 9 community members and the City Councillor serve on both boards, and the TDSB Trustee also serves on the Board of Management. Both meetings take place on the same day.

The Board meets on the last Monday evening of the month. Members attend these meetings, join at least one committee and attend occasional special events, for an average time commitment of 8-10 hours per month.

Applegrove welcomes people who reflect this diverse community, particularly those who are:  engaged in our community  skilled in government relations, marketing, revenue generation, human resources, public relations, or work in the legal profession  able to promote involvement from individuals and businesses

To learn more or apply contact Susanne Burkhardt, Executive Director before February 21 [email protected] / 416-461-8143 ext. 4

If you want to get involved but are not ready to become a Board member, please ask about working with a committee or volunteering at Applegrove.
