The Base supports emerging initiatives to strengthen and increase access to community-based change making, by combining quality administrative support with capacity building and opportunities for collective learning and action.

Current initiatives supported by The Base are:

  • Seed to Table is a youth-centered food-security initiative in the Kingston-Galloway/Orton Park neighborhood. The initiative works with young people, parents, and families to address the root causes of food insecurity, build capacity, increase community engagement, and meet community goals around food, health, and youth engagement.
  • The Reading Partnership is an initiative in Toronto’s Kingston-Galloway/Orton Park community focused on raising the literacy levels of children living in priority neighbourhoods by building the capacity of parents and establishing a local culture of reading and learning.
