FIVE Behaviour & Education Services Inc. aims to deliver lasting benefits to Southern Vancouver Island communities where we work and live. FIVE’s vision is to:
On December 3, 2017, FIVE committed to support the following objective as part of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. Reducing Inequalities: empower and promote the social, economic and political inclusion of all, irrespective of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other status (one of the UN 2030 objectives). Thus our community investment strategy and goals for this year also support that objective as we try to do our part to bring change. Remember each droplet allows a ripple out effect!
FIVE is providing $250 to two individuals with developmental disabilities aged 15-25 who would like to develop their passion. The funding may be used towards a class or workshop. In return for the funding, FIVE requires that you propose and follow through with a way to share your passion with the community. For example, if you’re interested in knitting, you could put your new found knitting skills to creating baby blankets, toques or other items to donate! If you would like to apply for a grant, please email: email@example.com. In the header write: Passion Grant. Tell what you would use the funds for and how you could share your passion back. Deadline for application is December 15, 2018, with decisions occurring in the early new year!
