Community Asset Donation Program Information

The Town of Yarmouth has created a Community Asset Donation Program Policy whereby individuals and organizations may make a general donation to the Community Asset Donation Program or a donation for a specific community asset. Any community asset can be a tribute to an individual or group. A community asset is considered to be, but not limited to, a tree, bench, work of art, structure, etc. The purpose of the Program is to provide a means to recognize and honour others through a lasting tribute. The contributions made through this program will also benefit the parks, urban forest, greenspaces, the natural environment and the community as a whole.

Do you need help making job connections?

The Connector Program can put you face to face with business owners, operators and community leaders who work in the same field you want to work in.

It’s no secret, people go where there’s opportunity. The Connector Program helps people match local skilled talent interested in building their network and starting their career in our region are known as Connectees with local employers, community leaders, and business professionals are known as Connectors.

I will match a Connectee with a Connector so they can meet for an informal conversation- maybe over a cup of coffee- and start building a network of people who can help the Connectee improve their job search in Western NS.

Connectors get to meet local skilled people who are looking to work here and also get to make a difference by helping talented people stay here and become members of our communities.

To find out if you qualify as a Connectee, or if you are interested in being a Connector go to contact me today.
