Creating Communities We Want: Applied Civics

NEW PROGRAM!

Trinity’s newest program is focused on furthering the role our Peer Leaders play not just in the school but in their communities. In this newly launched project, Trinity has created a program that supports the formation and branding of local Peer Leader Teams, who will undertake finding and making meaningful service opportunities for youth in their communities, in particular encouraging and mentoring their peers who are disengaged an disadvantaged.

Trinity’s Applied Civics project objectives:

· Take the Leadership Lab social scans, resource and asset mapping a step further by having local Peer Leader teams identify volunteer opportunities in their communities

· Develop and maintain community volunteer bulletin boards made available to guidance, ESL, student success and coop departments

· Engage fellow students in Civics and Careers classes to update the bulletin boards through individual and class challenges

· Create a self-awareness quiz in which youth identify assets, interests, skills, and career aspirations, and line them up with local volunteer opportunities in keeping with their interests

· Become social entrepreneurs. Local Peer Leader teams will create their own meaningful volunteer service projects and, with Trinity’s support and assistance, carry them out throughout the school year

· Make their peers aware of the benefits of meaningful community service, promote local volunteer opportunities and challenge their peers to get involved, through social media, videos, school assemblies and community forums

 

Trinity provides training, management and mentoring support, and acts as both a clearinghouse and lead agent in the creation of local ‘Collective Impact Models’.

  • This #MindfulMonday, take a break! We know this is a start of a probably very busy week for you, but how can you truly take in anything if you're exhausted? Take the time to do what makes your soul happy ;)
  • In the summer's #LeadershipLab19, the Greenwood team took us around their neighbourhood and showed us their community facilities. There, we were able to understand the community's needs by listening to a speech to the MP Julie Dabrusin. The team learned a great deal about their community as they prepared their community tour for us. We recommend you to take a walk around your neighbourhood one day! Learn about the facilities you can use, and what you can contribute.
