Welcome to Thunderbird Community Centre!

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide educational, cultural, recreational and social service programs to the Thunderbird catchment area.

History

Thunderbird Community Centre came to be when Thunderbird Elementary school was built in response to a BC Housing complex that opened its doors,  adjacent to it, in 1972.  A primary purpose of having a School and Centre share the same premises is so that together greater things can be achieved.  Though two different mandates, the Centre partners with the School on many issues, programs, projects and events.

Challenges vs Successes

The governing body of the Community Centre is Thunderbird Neighbourhood Association.  Despite some of the socio-economic challenges, we have had monumental success in being politically savvy and fundraising back in 1990’s to get a 2nd floor built at the Community Centre.   It was a Community initiative that drove this project.  Other successes have been art-focused such as two banner projects and two community projects.   We are currently involved in a third community art project, entitled “How do we highlight the diversity and unity of our community”.
