Jane Neighbourhood Alliance Services

At JANS, we are dedicated to the health and wellbeing of those in the community we serve. Senior Walkers has been part of our senior programming for the past 2 years. It encourages participants to become physically active through group walks through the neighbourhood or parks with other residents in the community. Additionally, we provide indoor programming for Zumba, Tai-Chi, as well as multi-cultural dance lessons with Soca and Bollywood influences.

A new project we have established revolves around community gardening. Through this project, we will provide people with an opportunity to learn from each other by sharing their knowledge of gardening, and in turn beautify the neighbourhood through their efforts. Not only will this allow individuals a space to learn about their environmental footprint and sustainable habits, but it will also provide them with the tools and foundation to create an at-home garden.
