Description Our Place Society’s New Roads, is a unique therapeutic recovery community located in View Royal that is dedicated to ending the cycle of substance use disorder, criminality and homelessness. New Roads is a positive, peer-led treatment environment that encourages appropriate behaviour through reinforcement and accountability. The practice and rehearsal of appropriate social interaction and interpersonal skills within a safe, supportive atmosphere allows residents to discover new attitudes, values, and ultimately a new way of life.

We are looking for a volunteer potter to run a two hour weekend afternoon program for 12 weeks with the male residents of New Roads. Class size will be up to the instructor. We have a potter’s wheel and kiln in the community’s art room. Clay will be supplied.

If you would like to join the fantastic team at the New Roads therapeutic recovery community please email me to come in and have a tour and discuss the program.
