The HopeWorks Connection knows that participation in the performing arts and the experience of academic improvement can transform a young person. We provide unique, engaging programs to youth in marginalized communities in the G.T.A.
TC3 is more than a choir. Bringing together young people ages 7 to 18 from across the Greater Toronto area, TC3’s purpose is to promote, develop and encourage youth through inspirational song, dance and Afro-Caribbean drumming.
Rising Star Day Camp
Now in its second year, The HopeWorks Connection in partnership with Malvern Methodist Church is pleased to offer RISING STARS – a performing arts, sports and creative arts-centred day camp experience for children and pre-employment aged youth in the Malvern area of Toronto. This year, Rising Star has expanded to include the Take Note Band Program giving campers an opportunity to learn to play brass, woodwind or percussion instrument and play in a band along with their participation in day camp activities.
We have been providing Afro-Caribbean dance and drum workshops for over ten years. Recognizing the high level of our experience and wanting to support our work with disadvantaged youth, our clients have included corporations, individuals, businesses, schools and community groups.
The “Play our Sound” project is a beginner-intermediate level musical instruction and mentorship program for racialized youth ages 15-24 in the Weston Mount Dennis community. The program uses music to teach youth new skills and provides meaningful leadership opportunities to youth within the community.
