The Windows to Opportunity (WTO) is a 28-week program that supports the positive development of Black youth through mentorships with professional artists. The WTO program provides hands-on learning in five different fields of study: computer graphics/animation, dance, event planning, media arts, and stand-up comedy.
The Welcome to Blackhurst program engages and educates all Canadians – particularly students – to the rich legacy of the history-makers of Toronto’s Bathurst-Bloor and Annex neighbourhoods. It incorporates hands-on activities that readily connect participants to the local history of the surrounding community. Visitors have participated in walking tours of the neighborhood, coffee ceremonies, sing-a-longs with musicians, and listened to history lectures of this iconic neighbourhood.
