Building a solid foundation.
Brampton Northwest Connects

Good character is just like a home’s foundation – slow to build but without it, you have nothing.

In this story, you’ll learn how the Brampton Northwest Connects group – a consortium of 19 schools across both Boards, community agencies, Peel Police, politicians, youth, City of Brampton, Peel Public Health, residents and private businesses – is addressing after-school programs, leadership development, safe communities and community outreach together.

It’s goal? Building leadership, empathy and consciousness in the next generation of northwest Brampton youth. And it’s working, one kid at a time.
