    Part I - Workshops

    The Citizenship Project is a new program for young adults (18-30) with developmental disabilities who want to learn more about advocacy, city issues, and how to get involved in their communities. Each week we will work with a different organization to investigate a different focus, and then process the pieces through an active workshop with Ahuri Theatre. This is a 2-part program; Part II will commence in January 2019. For more information, contact Liviya Mendelsohn at 416 924 6211 x330 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
