Malahang Reserve Community Engagement Volunteer

The Program
This Program provides youths with an opportunity to get out of the house, away from the screens, and engage in something healthy and fun. People can participate in exciting sports activities, such as soccer, footy, and basketball, or learn to ride a bike in a safe and welcoming environment.

The Bike Hut at the reserve provides people with an area to repair their bikes, scooters, and skateboards in addition to donating bikes to residents for school, work, and recreation.

The Open House Coffee Cart is also a regular feature at Malahang Reserve during this Program, serving coffees and hot chocolates to community members.
