A Message From The Executive Director
It is a privilege to join the Cabbagetown Youth Centre as the new
Executive Director. Growing up in Regent Park, I know firsthand the
tremendous impact and value community centres and community-based
programming have on both enriching and providing opportunities to our
children and youth.
Throughout my 30-year career as
Manager of Parks and Recreation for the City of Toronto, I was always
engaged and aware of the great history of CYC. I was inspired by its
diversity and CYC’s ability to provide recreation, skill development,
social cohesion and education to children, youth and people of all ages,
barrier free. It continues to be a focal point of the Cabbagetown, St.
James Town and Regent Park neighbourhoods and provides opportunities,
especially for those who may need them the most, throughout the entire
It is my personal goal to keep the organization
strong, expand funds, achieve results and continue to build on CYC’s
rich history of both being a trusted community resource and establishing
relationships and partnerships with its many agencies, partners and
An important step in achieving our goals
is through a strategic plan. This is relavent to ensure we remain
current and engaged. We are on the path to ensuring that CYC remains a
strong and vibrant organization and continues to serve as a fixture and
trusted resource for years to come.
I hope you will
share this sense of excitement with us. I look forward in launching a
series of community meetings and consultations so that your feedback can
continue to shape the centre by contributing to our decision-making
processes and future direction.
We look forward to seeing you, your children and families in our Winter and March Break Program and throughout the year.
