The Tyndale Health & Human Services Department is partnering with students from the Ryerson University Journalism Program and the York University School of Social & Political Thought to raise community awareness of the Health & Human Services program at Tyndale. Also, this event is to raise awareness of a couple of of high-impact, community-based programs supporting positive social change amongst children across GTA communities. 

A key objective of the event to demonstrate the leadership role of Tyndale's Health & Human Services program in addressing important social and community issues facing our society.

 

Food and Refreshments will be provided. We will be accepting free will offerings and 100% of donations will be directly used to support & benefit community-based programs for children and youth in east Toronto.

Parking Fees are covered - Be sure to register your car license plate at the reception desk.

The documentary is contextualized by a "State of Toronto Communities Address" by a panel of folk related to the documentary. The documentary itself highlights issues of post Ephraim Brown and post-Danzig events in lights of political and funding challenges - but it also offers solutions in terms of high-impact, low-cost community-based programming. Presenters are from York University, Ryerson University and Tyndale University (featuring Tyndale Health & Human Services student Ms Renee Wallace) as well as from highly-effective, community based agencies.

It is an event hoping to bring awareness of the good work of the Neighbourhood Basketball Association which combines academic success and physical fitness as well as the Toronto City Mission's five program sites across the GTA. Shyanne Charles (the 15-year-old killed in Danzig) was a part of the Neighbourhood Basketball Program for a couple of years before the City lost her.
