Thank you for your interest in the Downtown Community Working Group. The deadline to apply is Friday, March 25, 2022, by 11:59 pm.
Downtown Kitchener (DTK) has realized tremendous change in the form of growth, investment, and revitalization over the last 20 years. This evolution is the result of a collaborative effort of passionate community stakeholders including residents, business leaders, academic partners, cultural organizations, creative professionals, entrepreneurs, social service providers, developers, event organizers, the Downtown BIA, the City of Kitchener, and more.
In anticipation of continued investments, revitalization, and growth over the next decade, we are seeking up to 30 volunteers with diverse perspectives and experience to form a Downtown Community Working Group. The energy, expertise, and collective wisdom of this group will support the development of a new vision for DTK and equity-based principles that will guide the next generation of community-led transformation in Downtown Kitchener.
Volunteers will attend monthly meetings held on the 4th Tuesday of every month from 4:30 – 6:30 pm, April 2022 through June 2023. Participation in community engagement activities, additional meetings, and/or work outside of meetings may be needed to accomplish the agreed upon work plan.
Accessible formats of the volunteer application and communication supports are available upon request.
If you require assistance to complete an application to volunteer or during any stage of our screening process, please call 519-741-2200 ext. 7064 or TTY 1-866-969-9994.
