Building Blocks, Building Local Leaders

With a focus on building civic participation, the Mennonite New Life Centre has made community engagement one of its organizational priorities. One key activity has been convening the Latin American Campaign for Civic Participation, which brings together 16 organizations.

Building Blocks leaders Adriana Salazar and Sadia Khan have created an intensive training program to deliver civic literacy training, focused on the Latin American community, at their Keele and Wilson location.

Adriana and Sadia are working together to deliver three three-day sessions in the community to:

  • Twenty staff from organizations taking part in the Latin American Campaign for Civic Participation
  • Twenty community members served by organizations participating in the campaign
  • Twenty promising leaders from across the Greater Toronto Area
