How do we demonstrate the value of what we do?
The Community Sector Council Newfoundland and Labrador is leading a local effort to reduce poverty in low income neighbourhoods of St. John’s. Part of a nation-wide program sponsored by Tamarack Institute and funded by the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation and Human Resources and Social Development Canada, Vibrant Communities brings together people living in poverty, government, the voluntary sector and the private sector to develop solution collaboratively.
The Clusters project is exploring the potential and developing a model for building local networks of nonprofits to enable collaboration and to provide support to organizations experiencing similar issues. CSC is in its second year in the Cabot Loop area of the Bonavista Peninsula and began work on the Burin Peninsula in 2009.
The Community Sector Working Committee is a group of leaders from across the province who come together in person, by phone, and online to share ideas and approaches. It was formed by the Community Sector Council NL in 2011 to help CSC meet its mandate to provide capacity-building and support to the community sector and to help shape and influence public policy.
The Community Sector Council delivers workshops, presentations and webinars on a variety of topics specific to the voluntary, community sector. We can also provide customized training to your board or staff.
CSC is a member of the Canadian Nonprofit Innovators Network. We are looking for the innovative practices of nonprofit organizations in Newfoundland and Labrador. Help us share your success!
