Over the summer, a group of Bachelor of Community Development (BCD) students, with the support of their Faculty Advisor Julet Allen, worked collaboratively with the Central Etobicoke Community Hub Initiative (CECHI) board. The purpose of the Space Inventory Project was to help agencies provide programming and resources to those in Central Etobicoke with unrepresented access to social services. The Space Inventory Project included 5 phases: mapping of demographics, mapping needs of partnering agencies, mapping community spaces, synthesizing analysis of repositories, and facilitating agency collaboration. A final report was created which will serve for the future planning of the physical hub, potentially located in Etobicoke Civic Centre. Overall, the project was an excellent way for students to learn about social engagement and planning. If you would like to learn more about the project you can find multiple articles about it online, including “Community Services Web Portal a Stopgate on Road to Central Etobicoke Hub” on Toronto.com.
