Lake Trail Community Education Society

Support LTCES this giving season!

Over the past 13 years, Lake Trail Community Education Society has made a big impact in the lives of our community. Below, we will be sharing stories and testimonials from parents, youth, volunteers, community partners, and staff members. 

We aim to offer all of our programs for free, by donation, or with bursaries available. This means that we need to work extra hard to raise funds to support these initiatives. Donate to LTCES this giving season so we can continue to offer 100% financially barrier free programming! 

Donate now, and receive a charitable tax receipt through Canada Helps.

Consider signing up for a monthly donation, helping us work towards sustainable funding! 


“My daughter has absolutely loved the after school programs with the LTCES. Being new to the school last year and not really interested in joining sports teams, this still allowed her an opportunity to build connections and have something to look forward to after school. Ella learned some really great skills, both in outdoor education and the baking/cooking classes.  In the last,  whenever the program has ended, she always asks me to make sure I am the first to sign her up when they are offered again. I’m so grateful and thankful for all the thought, time and effort that go into these community programs.”

In all my work around how to build resilience, one thing has been proven over and over: Resilience comes from Connection. Connection comes from Community. LTCES gives us a place to build a village.

What is a Community School?

A Community School takes one of the largest and most under-utilized public facilities, the public school, and increases the investment by keeping it open evenings, weekends and during the summer for community activities.

Through multi-ministry funding and non-profit partnerships, community schools address the needs of all age groups, with programs for pre-school children, after school care, and adult education and recreation. The expanded mandate of the educational system in recent years has strengthened the potential of community schools in British Columbia.
