Chinguacousy students assist with afterschool ice skating program
As part of Youth Opportunities Through Community (YO!TC), Chinguacousy Secondary School students have helped to plan and run an afterschool ice skating program at Greenbriar Recreation Centre for 11 to 13 year olds. In partnership with Brampton Safe City, the student-led organization has been involved with applying for grant money to pay for instructors, ice rental, skates, helmets and snacks as well as organizing activities on and off the ice. Their ultimate goal is to provide youth a chance to participate in social community activities, which would support equity, as well as safety.
