In October, a Launch Event was held at Eastdale CI to celebrate the new Community Changemakers project which featured guest speakers, a BBQ, and a rooftop garden!
With the start of a new school year came the very exciting beginning of our Eastdale Project.
To celebrate this initiative, a Launch Event was held at Eastdale on October 17th which featured guest speakers from the Toronto Police Services, the Trillium Foundation, and the Toronto District School Board. Through a partnership between Eastdale CI and Foodshare, the event was able to host their lunchtime BBQ on the expansive rooftop garden. Students, faculty, community members, partners, and Peacebuilders staff enjoyed the sunshine with great company and great food. It was a wonderful event and Peacebuilders would like to thank all those who came out to support this new project.
Peacebuilders is proud to be a part of the restorative justice movement being integrated into school environments, and is excited for the future of the Community Changemakers project at Eastdale Collegiate Institute. For more information about the Eastdale project, please visit our programs page.
