Bridging the Gap

Students will participate in the initiatives put forth by "The Gathering Place" and "Vibrant Communities - Citizen's Voice".

Students will be educated about poverty and how THEY can make a difference or offer support.

They will document their experiences through journaling and video diaries.

The Vibrant Communities Citizens Voice Network provides a forum for people living with low income, bringing them together to meet on a regular basis in a sharing and supportive environment.

The Gathering Place is a service centre committed to building community, promoting equality and providing nourishment. It exists to meet the needs of people whom society has failed.
