The Working Centre was established in the spring of 1982 as a response to unemployment and poverty in downtown Kitchener. The Working Centre organizes its projects into six areas; the Job Search Resource Centre, St. John's Kitchen, Community Tools, Access to Technology, Affordable Supportive Housing and the Waterloo School for Community Development.
The Working Centre seeks to build on the ideas of Common Work – the work of sustaining and supporting a creative community committed to the common good. The title of ‘volunteer workdoesn't always capture the beauty and dignity of such work. ‘
The Community Tools projects around The Working Centre support a wide range of work volunteer work, community work, heavy work, light work, compassionate work, paid work all have equal status towards useful pursuits. Opportunities around the centre include bicycle recycling, computer recycling, the sharing and preparation of food, the support of others and the exchange between people from all walks of life the combination of skill building, helping others, and enjoying those around us. We invite you to become involved.
