For those unfamiliar with Brampton Northwest Connects, we’re a volunteer organization that has been connecting (since 2007) with Peel and Dufferin-Peel schools, Peel Police, Peel Public Health, City of Brampton Recreation and Culture, Brampton Public Library, local politicians, youth leaders, private business, social agencies and community members. We’ve built a foundation for our community by putting children and youth first, and through that we’ve created a safe, open and caring environment to live, work and play in. Our meetings offer you the chance to connect with your colleagues and with agencies and organizations that offer many exciting opportunities for your school and your students. One of the most inspiring and ‘connecting’ parts of the meeting is the “Good News & Round-the-Room” agenda item. You have to be there to see just how many connections are made and to make some of your own!
