Community Living Mississauga offers youth, 10 to 21 years of age, a diverse and exciting community summer program that allows the youth to make the most of all that the summertime has to offer.
Program staff support groups of approximately four participants to plan and participate in a variety of community activities. These activities include: sports, art, shopping, movies, sight-seeing, special events, etc. Teens are grouped according to age, needs and where they live.
Each group meets at one of the local community centers in Mississauga. Participants and staff use public transit and Transhelp to get to and from planned daily activities. The program gives youth the opportunity to develop their leisure interests, enrich their life experiences and make new friends, all while having fun. Staff support participants to become more familiar with their community while developing new skills and independence.
