The Sparking Change Toronto program connects equity-seeking community groups with training, networks, seed funding and coaching to transform their parks into engines of community development.
We do this by:
- Fostering a thriving Sparking Change Network; a robust network of community park groups, park friends groups, community leaders, local community organizations who have been part of the program’s nine-year history,
- Building the capacity of park group leaders by providing access to training, coaching and local networks.
- Contributing microgrants to catalyze parks in equity-seeking communities.
- Establishing community partnerships that link organizations together to transform parks into community hubs.
