Monday – 10am: Our Place presentation – Our Place is the only youth shelter in Peel, but they plan on opening a shelter in Brampton. Come and hear about all of the services that Our Place offers for youth.
Tuesday – 7pm: Hammer Band Concert – Our youth along with youth from several other classes will be putting on a concert at Sir Wilfred Laurier Public School (Bartley Bull Parkway). Come out and support our young people and enjoy a delightful hour of some pretty good violin music. We have a bus leaving The Journey at 6:15pm and it will bring you back at the end of the concert!
Thursday – 6:15pm: Sex Trafficking and Youth – We have a serious problem in our community. Girls as young as 13 years old have been offering sexual services. So, we are hosting a community presentation from a number of different agencies including: YMCA, Elizabeth Fry Society, Peel Regional Police, Peel Committee Against Women Abuse, etc., etc.. This evening will inform you of what is happening, what to look for and what services are available. We are providing babysitting, refreshments and some really great draw prizes.
All this is happening this week plus our great ongoing programs – Think Tank and Life Group on Tuesday, Women’s Wednesday on Wednesday, Early Years and Kidzone on Thursday and ARTStart on Saturday!
Don’t forget on Monday at 10am a representative from Our Place (the only teen shelter in all of Peel) will be at The Journey talking about all the services Our Place offers and their plans to expand into Brampton. Everyone is welcome!
Tuesday, May 31st is the big Hammer Band Concert at Sir Wilfred Laurier Public School on Bartley Bull Parkway. The concert is at 7pm. If you have ever driven on Bartley Bull and if you are concerned about being lost for most of the evening on Bartley Bull, then we have a solution for you! A bus will be leaving The Journey at 6:15pm and it will bring you back too! This way you don’t have to concern yourself with traveling on a street that goes in every direction! For those of you who have never been on Bartley Bull Parkway, this is not an exaggeration. It is a complete circle that meanders all through the neighbourhood!
There is a lot happening over the next few days. Saturday morning from 10am until noon is ArtStart (Grade 2 and Up). Sunday from 10am until 2pm Legacy Supply Chain will be planting trees at Centennial Park on Centre St. and digging four backyard gardens on Ardglen and we will be working alongside them! On Monday at 10am a representative from Our Place (the only teen shelter in all of Peel) will be talking about all the services Our Place offers and their plans to expand into Brampton. Remember you are welcome to be a part of all of these great events and so many more that take place here at The Journey.

Sadly, within our own Ardglen/Orenda community, teenage girls are being exploited and trafficked in the sex trade. On Thursday, June 2 from 6:15pm – 8:15pm we will hold a special Community Presentation at The Journey. We have representatives from a number of agencies who deal with this issue. Refreshments and babysitting will be provided and we have draws for several hundred dollars worth of gift cards.
We are in the midst of our program changes now as summer time approaches. This past Friday was the last “Freaky Friday Family Cooking” night until September. Next Tuesday is the last Think Tank until the Fall and so on. ArtStart and Kidzone are continuing for the next few weeks. Next Tuesday is the Hammer Band Concert at 7pm at Sir Wilfred Laurier Public School. For more information about all that is happening check out our EVENTS page.
