CURRENT COMMUNITY PROJECTS
Teen Space and Youth Programming - we are due to launch our new Teen Space at any time and will then work with our teens to develop programming in the space and also offer other youth programming via our team of Youth Workers. Want to get involved and work with the youth in our community? e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Development of our community spaces - we currently have a Community Garden, Community Kitchen and a Community Clubhouse that is available to our community members. All of these spaces need groups of volunteers to oversee the bookings, develop programming and ensure the spaces are operated efficiently and practically. We are also keen to develop other community spaces - a Community Theater and Community Gallery are two ideas on the list. For every space, we need a small group of dedicated volunteers to ensure they are able to continue operating.
If you are interested in getting involved in any/all of our community spaces, please e-mail email@example.com
Development of an attractive dog park - whilst we do have a 'functional' dog park, it is not a great place for dogs or their owners to spend time. We are keen to identify an area and then work together as a community to develop the space into an
attractive area where even non-dog owners would want to spend time!
Want to get involved in this project? e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Redevelopment of the Harbor Library as a central part of the KAUST community- the Harbor Library is a great space and in a great location. We want to review its
current use/operation and redevelop it so that it becomes a true 'hub' of our community.
We will need community members to get involved in the redevelopment project, but will also need volunteers to help deliver programming from the newly-developed space! e-mail email@example.com
These are just a few of the many projects and programs that we currently deliver (or would like to deliver) with our KAUST community.
If you have ideas, expertise, energy, enthusiasm... and time on your hands, and would like to get involved in developing and improving your community, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
