Building Bridges

trinity-theatre-building-bridgesBUILDING BRIDGES PROJECT

During the summer Leadership Lab 2018, Trinity will draw together intergenerational teams in the communities of Malvern and Rexdale to carry out Trinity’s Building Bridges project. These teams of youth and seniors will collaborate together – ‘building bridges’ between cultural, religious and ethnic communities, promoting diversity and inclusion through positive interaction, encouraging inter-cultural understanding, and advocating for broader school engagement with their communities.

The goal is to help youth and seniors develop stronger voices in their communities, bring broader attention to their shared issues, and develop strategies towards increasing awareness of cultural identity related to race, ethnicity, religion, or culture.

Intergenerational Activities include:

· SOCIAL SCAN FIELD TRIPS – Identifying a community’s existing infrastructure and cultural makeup, providing information and tools to engage in and appreciate the value of a multicultural society, co-creating strategies to address issues related to culture, ethnicity and race.

· CALL TO ACTION COMMUNITY FORUMS and SOCIAL ACTION THEATRE PRESENTATIONS – Public expressions of the experience of working intergenerationally, sharing the results of their analysis of what is vital to understanding Canada and Toronto’s ongoing experience of social integration.

· DIVERSITY WORKSHOPS – A new secondary school offering for Trinity’s Peer to Peer program. Peer Leaders are trained and mentored intergenerationally to deliver a diversity and inclusion workshop that works towards the elimination of discrimination, racism and prejudice.

· CIVICS-BASED VOLUNTEER PROJECT – Youth and seniors collaborating to develop and carry out a volunteer project in the community that tackles issues affecting full participation in Canadian society.

 

This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.
Ce projet a été rendu possible en grâce au gouvernement du Canada.
