MUSIC. MIND. MATTERS.

Teachers, principals and counsellors will help to identify specific students who they feel could benefit from this workshop. The basis for the needs we are addressing are derived from primarily 3 areas: the findings in the most recent TDSB stats report re: student drop out rates, etc., the needs identified by staff and the geographical challenges being faced by youth, in particular young males between the age 14-18 in that particular neighbourhood/surrounding community.
