Description

YMCA Newcomer Information Centre invites you to a series of workshops: Let's Talk about It! - Community Engagement Workshop III.

Community engagement is about organizations and people getting together and getting involved to make communities stronger. When individuals see themselves as not only having the ability to make changes to a community but also the ability to change their own lives as members of one, they become motivated and empowered to act.

Community Engagement is one of the workshops in Let’s Talk About It! a series that introduces participants to many of the aspects that make up Canada’s unique culture and society. By taking part, newcomers can expect a boost in self-confidence and a greater sense of belonging in Canada.

Topics include:

  • Developing appreciation for your new Canadian community
  • The value of volunteering from a Canadian perspective
  • City of Toronto Green Initiatives
  • Community gardens
  • Getting involved in local government activities

Let’s Talk About It! offers participants an experiential learning journey. Topics are covered through fun and thought-provoking activities and discussion.
