Welcome to Champions for Change
Each year the society takes on a projects or activities in the community and along with a number of community partners we have seen a great deal of success in positively impacting the quality of life in St. Paul. The society works mainly with the four focus areas that were identified in their Sustainability Plan.
- Downtown Revitalization – Family Day event, Downtown Banner Project, Graffiti Reduction Program, Canada Day event, Downtown Mock (mini) project, Street Art Program, Rock the Block (outdoor entertainment), Historical Panels and Reconciliation St. Paul Activities.
- Thrive on Wellness – “Healthy Food for all in St. Paul” (collective kitchens, food workshops, seed saving workshop).
- Cancer Prevention Project – A pilot project with Alberta Prevents Cancer and Alberta Health, to
reduce the risk of cancer in our community.
Please take a look at the various tabs and pages on this site and learn more about how St. Paul Champions for Change came about, what we have been involved in and what we are doing now and of course, the ways in which you might like to become involved. WE are always looking for volunteers to help with our projects.
