UNITY’S HOME BASE

Our organization was established as a registered charity in 2008, and has developed and implemented its core services in a number of Toronto communities. Our organization has delivered the UNITY School program (UNITY Days, and the 18-week UNITY Crew After School Program), as well as CommUNITY Programs (Multi-Arts Community Hubs, 4-day UNITY Festival, Youth Leadership Groups, Dance Drop-ins, University Chapters). Through our programming in a number of schools and communities UNITY has built an extensive list of partners. These partners range from high schools to other community organizations, charitable foundations, and corporations, which has solidified our reputation as effective arts based community organization. Our organization is currently active in several communities across Toronto ( Steeles-L’Amoreaux, Malvern, Dorset Park, among others), and the Peel region (Mississauga, Brampton).
