Our Community Board

Hello from Lysa Dixon & Jason McCormick, Co-Chairs

As representatives of the Community Board of Directors, we play an active role in providing local leadership to Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House. We advise and assist the Executive Director of the House in determining direction, actions and issues affecting the House and the services we provide the community.

We meet monthly and also volunteer our time for various projects and activities around the House. Our Community Board members come from many backgrounds and bring expertise and personal experiences, as well as their knowledge of the neighbourhood to their roles.

In recent years, we’ve contributed to the strategic planning process, exploring the Community Board’s role in supporting the Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House strategic plan. Along with this, we participate in ongoing professional development, which strengthens our collective leadership skills and helps us identify pathways where we can further our support of the House.

As a Community Board, we strive to provide leadership and support to the House, and to ensure the work of the incredible staff and volunteers continues to enrich the House, and the community. We welcome new skills and voices to enhance the diverse expertise of our Community Board, and encourage those who are interested in joining to contact us.
