Volunteers Needed for the ACPSA Casino in Edmonton
Casinos supply the Alberta Cerebral Palsy Sport Association (ACPSA) with 80 per cent of its entire budget and are used to cover facility rentals, equipment, staff, coach honorarium's, and travel expenses for out of town training and competition, so your donation of time is invaluable!

All athletes receiving travel support are expected to volunteer or supply a volunteer for at least one shift (shifts will take place approximately between 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. or 6 p.m. - 3 a.m. depending on the position).
On June 1st, 2017, the Federation of Calgary Communities along with The City of Calgary launched a brand-new microgrant program – called ActivateYYC – to community residents across Calgary.
ActivateYYC is a new, one-time microgrant program that centers on local community projects that bring people together to walk, play and be neighbourly. These projects employ tactical urbanism – quick, temporary, and low-cost initiatives. ActivateYYC will provide grants – averaging $750 – to organized groups and businesses to experiment with temporary local projects and events that motivate Calgarians to walk, play and be neighbourly. Projects are encouraged to take place in any season of the year. To support, organize and administer these grants, the Federation of Calgary Communities has partnered with the City of Calgary and Walk21 to introduce the ActivateYYC program to local communities!
