I truly believe that our district has so much potential to be a shining example of community pride for the City of Montreal. And I also strongly advocate that as a district, with such a high influx of youth and families, the time to increase its services and infrastructures is upon us.
The following project proposal has come through personal reflections and conversations with youth and families. I would like to assist our district in continuing to become a vibrant, safe and positive environment.
Our intent is always prevention before intervention and offering young people the opportunity to express their gifts and talents in a positive way so they can give back to the community and become leaders in our community and beyond. The young people must have an ownership to the facility and the project we want to implement.
It will be the youth of our community and that are attached to the program that will have a leadership role and responsibility. "youth leading youth"...
The ball hockey facility which will be named after Aviva's Insurance company will have the following components and/or be used in the following way;
1. Supervised free play,.
2. Creation of a ball hockey summer camp.
3. Organized youth and adults leagues.
4. Special events.
5. Implementation of fitness/staying in shape activities/programs.
6. Development of leadership based projects by the young people through the sport of (ball) hockey.
7. Modification to use for different sports (mini soccer, ultimate Frisbee, etc...)
The location would be (in collaboration with the City of Montreal recreation department), a versatile park in Rivieres-des-Prairies (east end of Montreal) who’s infrastructure is suitable for an implementation of a ball hockey rink.
The budget would consist of the following
1. Construction of ball hockey arena/facility.
2. Publicity and operating budget.
3. Maintenance of facility.
4. Two animators
A partnership between various government and city levels is necessary for different components of the projects to be successful. But the first initiative and collaboration hopefully will be with the Aviva Community Fund.
I’ve been actively involved in the community since 1990 and I’m the co-founder and Program Coordinator of the Don Bosco Youth Leadership Centre (YLC). I’ve been a resident of Rivieres-des-Prairies since 1980. I’m happily married for the last five years and I have four beautiful children aged 6years to 1 year old..
My passion is with youth; offering them different types of activities, developing their leadership skills and helping them to express their skills and talents. My personal philosophy is that "No young person is invisible. Everyone is someone." I also enjoy providing opportunities for adults to give back to the community. I accomplish this objective by addressing their social and recreational needs and in turn challenging them to have a social responsibility and accountability to their community.
My dreams continue to evolve as I’m constantly looking at how we as a community, can reach out to more youth, adults and families. Not only in program planning but in creating awareness that all of us can make a positive impact by sharing our resources, skills and talents. For more information on what we do, please visit dbylc.com or contact me through email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 514-928-7676.
I appreciate this opportunity to share with you what I KNOW will be a positive impact in our community and especially for the youth that we welcome and want to reach out to through the sport of (ball) hockey.
In friendship, Theo Vecera
