What we do

The underlying objective behind the Community Development Division is to provide the support environment and capacity that empowers members of the community to do for themselves.  Community Development is defined as a process in which people of a community organize themselves for planning and action.  It is a process for changing communities toward desired goals and emphasizes a concern for active participation and involvement by citizens through a coordinated effort.  A visible and resource effective application of this model is the provision of parks and recreation services at the community level.

The Community Development Division provides leadership development, organizational development, and volunteer support services.  This Division will support, advise on, organize or participate in public initiatives conducted for the purpose of:  supporting volunteer capacity; leadership development of youth; building partnerships between organizations; and information sharing.  Grant programs whose purpose is to assist volunteer, community-based organizations to deliver sport, culture, recreation, and park programs are administered through this Division.  These services are available to non-profit, volunteer, community-based organizations that deliver sport, culture, parks and recreation programs within the city.

This Division is also responsible for working with the Newcomer Settlement Committee to ensure new residents to Yorkton have access to sport, culture, parks and recreation services.
