North Peace Bracket Racing Association

Mission Statement: To provide a safe, fun, family friendly environment to promote drag racing.

Vision Statement: We hope to grow as an organization through members, and the youth who will hopefully take over as they get older.

Time to Burn RubberIf you live in the peace region and like the smell of burnt rubber, exhaust and watching fast cars then you more than likely already know about the North Peace Bracket Racing Association. The volunteer driven non-profit is an active part of the community for the past 27 seasons. Their Drag Races are held at the Pat’s Auto Supply Motorsports Park, located at the Beaverlodge Airport, which the group recently purchased, Bracket Event Director Derek Falconer states “The facility is beautifully maintained by our volunteers, and still serves as a private airport.” He continues “Without volunteers we simply would not exist. We have no paid employees; we depend entirely on our wonderful volunteers.”

Volunteers clean the track after a spillThe race season runs from May to September in that time volunteers help with the races setup and take down of the track, selling memorabilia, fundraisers and more. The group also works with A&W to raise money for the MS Society and local charities.  They also hold the annual Spring Spectacular Indoor Car Show & Swap Meet in April at the TARA Centre. NPBRA volunteers also come together to support the community at various events like the County of Grande Prairie Weed Warriors and cleanup programs.

Frontier College

Frontier College logo

Mission Statement: Frontier College is a national charitable literacy organization. We believe literacy is a right. We work with volunteers and community partners to give people the skills and confidence they need to reach their potential and contribute to society.

Vision Statement: To be a leading and results-driven literacy service partner.

Established in 1899 by teacher Alfred Fitzpatrick and a group combined of university students & faculty, Frontier College is Canada's original literacy organization. The initial purpose of the organization was to send trained Teachers-Labourers to live, work and teach in isolated “frontier” settlements, like mines, logging camps and railway lines.  Today the nation-wide non-profit’s volunteers and community partners focuses on Canada’s “new frontiers” – inner city schools & streets, public housing areas, farm communities, prisons and reserves.
