With our project, we hoped to provide engaging and exciting activities at zero-cost to youth that encourage greater attendance at Collingwood neighbourhood activities, foster a friendly and homey environment through building new relationships, and create a sense of belonging. Our activities will engage youth of all races, ethnicities, and cultures by fostering cross-cultural understanding and providing a safe and inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds to engage with one another recreationally.
Our project delivered 3 events: 1) Youth Karaoke Event, 2) Food Literacy workshops, and 3) Dodgeball Tournament. These events engaged 80 youth in total. Each event included a food component to promote nutrition, cultural understanding (by preparing cultural foods), instil participants with food skills, and to provide a cohesive activity through which to connect with each other more fully.
