About TransformNation

TransformNation is a non-profit organization in Mississauga, Ontario. We build stronger communities through engagement and inclusion. The organization stimulates and supports community development through engagement and inclusiveness.

The Mission of Our Community Organization:

Working to build strong communities, where individuals and families are valued and supported.

The core principles of the organization are community participation and empowerment. The programs are also designed to address the sense of hopelessness that youth violence is creating and to foster an atmosphere of healing from the traumatic effects that violence has on the community at large.

Our organization works from the four P’s:

  1. People
  2. Programs
  3. Projects
  4. Participation.

All programs are designed to address the sense of hopelessness that youth violence is creating and foster an atmosphere of healing from the traumatic effects that violence has on the community at large.

Over the past three years, TransformNation has collaborated with community organizations, businesses, and government to implement actions to create community environments which are more inclusive and equitable.

We continue to collaborate, mobilize, organize and implement meaningful programs and strategic interventions; giving children and their families the possibility of reaching their optimal potential.

Our programs’ inherent curriculum design strengthens our capacity for youth engagement in community planning, and democratic processes by:

  • Increasing opportunities for all young people to participate in the decision-making processes that will shape their future, as well as the future of their families and their communities.
  • Sharpening skills to be actively involved as citizens, leaders, and partners; share the responsibility of implementing potential solutions to issues which impact them.
  • Seeking to empower parents with information and tools to make good choices for themselves and their families.
  • Stimulating and supporting community development through engagement and inclusiveness.
