Power To Be partnered with the Steele family in March 2016 on a long-term lease of the former Prospect Lake Golf Course. With lake access, open natural spaces and forested trails to explore, the site is an inclusive hub for programs, helping us expand our program offerings.

The move allowed us to consolidate gear and programs in one location. Programs hosted onsite include kayaking, hiking, canoeing, and other activities for youth and families living with a physical, mental, social or financial barrier. The site also acts as a staging area for programs that bring participants to natural spaces throughout Vancouver Island and the Vancouver area.

Building a sense of place

Transitioning a former golf course into an inclusive and accessible recreation hub comes with a lot of work. Proving the power of working together, HeroWork, a Victoria-based non-profit organization, selected us as its 2017 partner for a series of Radical Renovations. With the help of this amazing organization, we will be able to address accessibility needs around waterfront access, our clubhouse, trail system and outdoor program spaces.

How you can help

We are currently finalizing the plan with HeroWork for which projects to undertake in 2017 at our Prospect Lake site. Check back soon to see opportunities as they arise. If you are interested in volunteering for Power To Be in general, check out our volunteer page for more information.
