Paint for Prosperity Project

2021-2022

The owners and staff of the Central Alberta Business Centre feel strongly about giving back to the community in a way that benefits the community economically and socially. We understand that we have the capacity, and responsibility, to help support and manage projects that benefit the broader business community. 

 

With Alberta's loss of resource income and COVID-19, the time to be proactive has passed and it is time to actively engage in projects that will help our business community long term. 

Where to begin? We felt a fresh coat of paint is always a good place to start.

Paint for Prosperity Project will challenge our youth to develop a working board over the 2021 winter months and then manage the project, and execute the project, in the summer of 2022. During this time we will be asking downtown business to apply to have their business facade updated with paint and/or pressure washing, and do minor repairs at a discount cost. 

Paint for Prosperity Project Objectives:

  1. Help business owners update their store fronts on Main Street

  2. Offer facade consultations to downtown business owners to help revitalize the downtown shopping area

  3. Provide real world project-based experience to local youth with SEED Program support.

  4. Provide 2022 summer jobs opportunities for local youth and job seekers

  5. Engage business owners to discuss future projects

  6. Provide an avenue for local youth to invest in their community

  7. Encourage entrepreneurship in our youth 

Board Development:

The SEED Program is currently taking applications to develop a board for Paint for Prosperity. All applicants must be between 16-25 years of age and provide a resume. The board will spend  2021 months developing the plans to execute the project in summer of 2022. All board positions are volunteer positions and the board will be supported by SEED volunteers, community partnerships and CABC staff.
