The Sustainability on My Mind program wishes to bring a fun but safe way to connect people in the community and share SCAN’s passion for environmental sustainability. The program was born to allow Canadian residents to learn new skills and practical self-sufficiency methods that cost little to no money.
To kick off the program, SCAN will host a series of workshops between November 2022 to June 2023 that will teach residents in the low-income neighbourhood of Malton, Mississauga, about eco-friendly, cost-efficient lifestyle strategies that households can practice on their own. The Community Foundations of Canada (CFC) is funding the workshops.
Our Strategic Plan
- SCAN aims to provide employment and experiential learning opportunities for individuals, from within the Malton community to be involved in the delivery of the project.
- The participation of community members will contribute to the execution of the project by facilitating activities in each workshop.
- The implementation of volunteers will give opportunities for community engagement, cultural exchange, as well as high school volunteer hours.

This is a sub project of the Youth Entrepreneurship Pathway and Job Creation program. SCAN is increasing the capacity of our ongoing Virtual Career fair with a focus on Black entrepreneurs. In these virtual interviews, business owners freely discuss their personal and professional journey with regards to advice for our youth. This database of interviews provide an introduction and background of participating Employers to students. The gathered content will be available to the general public to be used by schools during Career Fair seasons, webinars, information sessions, organizational partners, and Black History month. We will upload the videos on the SCAN YouTube channel.
