MCC Alberta programs
The Indigenous Neighbours program works to build respectful relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. We value our partnerships with Indigenous community groups and the knowledge they provide to help guide our work.
MCC Alberta's Restorative Justice programs help foster support and accountability for people returning to the community after incarceration, and work to restore and repair relationships for those impacted by crime.
- Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA) are groups of four to seven volunteers who are primarily from the faith community. They are committed to enhancing public safety by supporting community re-entry for former high-risk offenders through covenanting, meeting and walking daily with them.
Since 1979, MCC Canada has worked with private sponsorship groups to help refugees start a new life in Canada. In Alberta, MCC works with local churches and partners to assist newcomers in the resettlement process.
MCC offers many opportunities for youth and young adults to apply their talents, skills and passions to serve in MCC assignments where they can tangibly impact lives, learn about a new culture and experience spiritual growth.
Young adult programs include:
