Seeking Candidates for Board of Directors

 

In operation since 1960, Woodview is a non-profit organization that offers a broad spectrum of services for children and youth facing mental health challenges and individuals of all ages with Autism Spectrum Disorder. We support individuals and families to build on their strengths and reach their potential. Our services are flexible and responsive to the needs of individuals and families. At Woodview, we measure the results of our services to make sure that they are as effective as they can be. We serve the communities of Halton, Hamilton and Brant.

 

Woodview is funded by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services. This funding is supported by grants and donations and private fee-based services.

 

Seeking Candidates for Board of Directors

Woodview’s Board offers an opportunity to work with a committed group of people to make a difference in the lives of individuals and families. The Board focuses on effective governance, outcome measurement, financial and human resources stewardship, fundraising/donor development, performance monitoring and accountability, and risk management. This is an excellent opportunity to expand your own abilities and provide leadership at a strategic level.

 

Requirements include:

  • A commitment to Woodview’s mission, vision, and values.
  • Prepare for, attend, and participate in all Board meetings (an average of 6 per year on Wednesday evenings at 5:00 p.m.)
  • Membership on a minimum of one committee of the Board meeting an average of 3 – 4 times per year

 

We are currently particularly interested in candidates with the following competencies:

  • A connection to mental health or autism
  • Previous Board experience is considered an asset.

 

Youth who are age of majority are welcome and encouraged to apply for a role on the Board.

 

Equal Opportunity

Woodview strives to reflect the diversity of the communities we serve. We welcomes applications from all qualified individuals, including individuals within equity categories of women, persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities and aboriginal persons, individuals of diverse gender and sexual orientation and all groups protected by the Human Rights Code. Woodview is committed to equity and diversity and a positive and supportive environment.

New Brand Identity and Website for the Woodview Learning Centre

Posted by on Wednesday, October 17, 2018 ·  

We’re thrilled to unveil the new brand identity and website for the Woodview Learning Centre, an alternative school placement program for students from 4 to 17 years of age with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

New Website for Woodview Learning Centre

The new website was designed for parents that are looking for an alternative school placement for their child with ASD. “We wanted to
create a stress-free space where parents that are searching for an ASD-specific school would easily find the information that they are
looking for in a clear and transparent way,” said Lindsey Court, Principal and Program Manager. “For the past 15 years we have strived to
provide ‘just right’ supports for each student, and now our new website highlights the work that we do.” Parents, medical professionals,
and service providers are invited to explore the site, to learn more about our program, and to follow our new blog. It was important for us
to create an AODA compliant website, and we welcome feedback on the site’s accessibility: woodviewlearningcentre.ca

New Autism School Logo Designed by School Parent


We wanted a logo that would be specific to the school and emphasize the educational aspect of the Woodview Learning Centre, while
maintaining its connection to the main agency, Woodview Mental Health and Autism Services. We approached Karen Jorritsma of Bolster
Design – a former school parent – who designed the beautiful new logo, and describes it as “an open book with pages that are in
movement representing momentum in learning. The orange figure in the middle represents a student whose ‘arms’ reach up in a happy,
positive direction, showing joy and enthusiasm. The ‘body’ is an abstract heart shape, representing the care received at the school.”
