Activity Service

Building self-esteem & independence through activities

The purpose of Pathways’ Activity Service is to provide opportunities for individuals to develop skills and abilities that promote self-esteem and independence through productive meaningful activities in recreation, leisure, retirement, volunteerism, employment and skill development.

Services are provided on an individual or group basis and specifically develop knowledge and skills in communications, personal and civic responsibility, safety, self-help, life skills, health, wellness, volunteerism, employment, recreation, leisure, socialization and community participation.

Through our Activity Service, Pathways staff support people with diverse-abilities to volunteer thousands of hours in the community each year.

In fact, volunteers through Pathways have dedicated their time to providing support to a wide range of community organizations and causes including the Mission Thrift Store, Compassionate Canada, Gifts For Grandmas, Mountainview, the Humane Society, SPCA, Spring Valley Care Center, Trinity Baptist Church, Village at Mill Creek, Easy Breeze Acres, Metro, Peachland Wellness Center, West Kelowna Health Network, United Church Hot Lunch program, West Kelowna Food Bank, Woman’s Haven, White Heather Manor, MCC Thrift Store, Pine Acres, Freedom’s Door, Pet Creations for Donation, Hands in Service, St. Joseph’s Hot lunch program and Adopt a Road

Activity Services are offered between 8:30 am and 3:30 pm Monday through Friday at 123 Franklyn Road and 2476 Main Street (West Kelowna) and/or in community.

Individuals may choose, depending on the availability of service space, to attend half days, full days, every day, or only certain days and/or certain times.

Activity Service employment supports may be provided outside of regular service hours.

Services are driven by the belief that people with diverse abilities are entitled to the same rights and opportunities as all citizens. Opportunities at times are adapted to accommodate the differing abilities of each person.
Core services are funded by Community Living BC (CLBC). Additional funding is provided by various British Columbia ministries and or corporations, fees, contracts, sales, donations and granting from various other stakeholders.  Our main referral source is CLBC.
