Learning through living


Much of the learning at L’Arche takes place as we live our day-to-day lives.  From your first day in L'Arche, you will be supported to learn and succeed.  This takes a variety of forms:

  • A supportive House Leader who provides up front direction and guidance, as well as, coaching and feedback.
  • As a House Team you will meet weekly to plan, discuss challenges, seek advice, and learn from one another’s experiences.
  • Roles & Goals meetings are a regular one-on-one time with your House Leader where together you will look ahead and plan your priorities
  • Feedback at L’Arche is balanced and supportive and includes: identifying your gifts and strengths; sharing the appreciation the members of your home hold for you and for how you are living your role; and clear priorities and direction for how you can improve in the role.

We expect you to learn and grow in the Assistant role and we are committed to providing the support you need. Asking questions and being curious is a good thing.
