YWCA Banff

The Harmony Project is pleased to partner with Calgary Communities Against Sexual Assault to offer the following free staff/volunteer training session:

Responding to Disclosures of Sexual Assault
Tuesday, August 23rd
YWCA Banff

This three hour workshop encourages participants to engage in conversations about the dynamics of sexual assault within our communities. Participants will have a chance to increase their knowledge of sexual assault by exploring definitions, laws, prevalence rates, common misconceptions and core facts about how and why sexual violence continues to occur. Participants will also develop their understanding of the ways in which sexual assault can impact an individual as well as strengthen their ability to respond to a disclosure of sexual assault in a positive and supportive manner.

Everyone welcome! This training is suitable for those who work or volunteer with young adults or families and would like to build some skills around responding to disclosures. A great opportunity for anyone who is interested in the First Responder training but can’t commit to a full 2-day session.

To confirm your spot please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone 403.760.3200.

Share Basket
Back by popular demand we are offering a Share Basket on Wednesday Aug 10th at the Banff farmers market.
It is part of our quest to reduce food waste, increase food security and promote community connections. Popular at many farmers markets this is an opportunity for vendors and local hobby growers to donate food that would otherwise be tossed out. Produce may be discarded because it is not pretty enough, looks a little sad or needs to be eaten immediately – whatever the reason it is still nutritious and delicious!

Please invite your clients to the Town of Banff booth to share from our basket. We will have a limited selection of fruit & vegetables donated by vendors and local community greenhouse members. Clients are free to take what they need (bring their own bag). There is no charge. The greenhouse members will have a donation jar – proceeds to go towards a 3rd greenhouse. However, clients should not feel under any obligation to donate.

 Settlement Services

Introducing Community Connections in the Bow Valley!

This is a new program within Settlement Services in the Bow Valley and Community Services. Funding for the program is provided through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and the Town of Banff. The program works in partnership with the Town of Canmore and serves communities throughout the Bow Valley (Banff, Canmore, Lake Louise and Kananaskis).

Community Connections in the Bow Valley works to achieve the vision of a welcoming and connected Bow Valley in which the strengths and needs of both longer-term and newer community members are respected, understood, supported and celebrated.

The program supports all newcomers to the Bow Valley, immigrant and Canadian-born, in building and strengthening connections to social networks, community resources, information and activities.

Through the Community Connections program, service providers, businesses, employers, and all community members have the opportunity to build cultural understanding, overcome communication barriers, strengthen community resources and together create a welcoming community for all.

Community Connections in the Bow Valley encompasses three key areas of work:

The ‘Community Connectors’ Program matches volunteer connectors (longer-term residents of the Bow Valley) with participants (new community members). Individual and family matches are made and involve weekly connections for a period of four months. Through conversation, introduction to community resources, cross-cultural learning, and shared activities, stronger community connections are built on both sides of the match.

Community Connections Activities celebrate community and culture, foster a sense of community belonging, and encourage respect and understanding among all community members through shared experiences.

Education and Awareness Initiatives:
• Support efforts to respect, understand, support and celebrate the unique strengths and needs of new community members.
• Encourage and facilitate collaborative, informed and culturally comfortable interagency service delivery.
• Improve awareness, understanding and use of community resources by new community members.

The Community Connectors program is currently recruiting for Volunteer Connectors. Anyone who has lived in the Bow Valley long enough to become comfortable and connected in the community is encouraged to consider volunteering to support new community members.

Individuals and families can volunteer to provide a friendly face in the community, share knowledge of community resources and services and help another individual or family build stronger community connections. Training, support and fun activities are all part of the Community Connector volunteer experience.
