In 2017, with our area growing quickly and with infrastructure finally in place for people to build community, we retired the organization. Thank you to everyone who worked with, and supported Brampton Northwest Connects for 10 community-building years!
Beginning in 2007, we built a foundation for our community by putting youth first. And through that, we created an open and caring environment for everyone.
We worked with:
- Peel Regional Police
- Peel Public Health
- City of Brampton
- Brampton Library
- Public Agencies
- Youth and Youth Leaders
- Private Business
Brampton Northwest Connects worked to:
- build leadership, empathy and consciousness in the next generation of youth (we were building for the future)
- connect parents to community resources to help their children (we knew you couldn’t do it alone)
- bring families – young and old – out of their homes to connect and share with other families (we know neighbours can be friends, too)
We wanted Brampton Northwest to be a community that’s good for your children’s health and yours, too.
We focused on several key areas, including:
- building youth leadership capacity
- opening doors to physical activity
- assessing community needs
- engaging the community
- educating parents
- inspiring creative expression
- promoting peace
