Block Connectors

Block Connectors

Block Connectors are always being recruited across Red Deer, Red Deer County, Bowden, Delburne, Elnora and Penhold, to informally connect neighbours on their urban or rural block.

Block Connectors will be asked to:

  • Have a friendly chat with the closest 10-20 households on the block.
  • Help neighbours connect at an activity once a year.
  • Receive training.
