L'Arche Association of Lethbridge engages in the work of building a more human and caring society by making known the gifts of people with intellectual disabilities. We are a non profit organization that has a volunteer board of directors. Serving on a L’Arche board is an unique opportunity to serve. The Board is responsible to ensure that L'Arche Lethbridge remains a vibrant community, faithful to it's Identity and Mission. It does this through effective governance, strategic planning, public relations and fundraising. Board members are encouraged to participate in the community life of L’Arche Lethbridge. Among other things this could include sharing a meal at one of the L’Arche homes, attending weekly community prayer, participating in our annual community retreat or attending community celebrations such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. Board and L’Arche members appreciate this informal relationship and the opportunity it provides to build relationship. Opportunities exist to participate in the wider world of L’Arche at the national and international level. L'Arche Association of Lethbridge welcomes Board Members from diverse backgrounds. Past and present Board Members have come from all walks of life. The board meets every second Wednesday from September to June at 7:00 to 9:30 PM. A minimum commitment of ten hours per month is required for meetings and committee work. If you are interested in service on the L'Arche Board of Directors please contact the Executive Director at 403-328-3735 extension 1.
