Making Connections

Making Connections

Making Connections is a substance abuse toolkit. Through the program, teachers, social workers and peer leaders work to address the needs of youth from under served communities whose use of drugs is limiting their ability to succeed in school and in life. The toolkit will be supported by an online coaching program that is currently under development.

The program is made up of a series of exercises that lead participants to make positive gains in self awareness, to increase their skills in communication and collaboration and to develop their resilience. By learning to understand the underlying attitudes they hold and the stories they tell themselves to support their present behaviour, students build their internal strength, envision change and take steps toward it.

“Through Trinity’s programming, students are successfully engaged in discussions about the issues of teenage relationships, substance abuse and violence prevention.” 
Diane Buhler, Executive Director, Parent Action on Drugs

“Trinity Theatre has had particular impact in influencing young people to move away from gang culture, especially dependence on drugs and alcohol; and have helped them to choose positive options for their lives.”
Bill Byrd, Safe and Caring Schools Administrator, TDSB

  • 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.
