Sunnydale Connect is an intentional youth community based out of North Waterloo. Our youth come from Waterloo, Collegiate, Bluevale, Sir John A, MacGregor and other high schools in the region. Together we discover what it means to belong and thrive in a safe community while gaining opportunities to develop as leaders and give back to our society.
“Sunnydale Connect is an intentional youth community that fosters personal growth and instills self-worth by creating a caring, inclusive, and safe place for youth in North-West Waterloo. Its purpose is to inspire hope, encourage healthy relationships, and provide opportunities for youth to become engaged, thriving, and contributing members
We believe that our current situation doesn’t define our future success; supported by mentors and peers, we challenge ourselves to venture beyond our comfort zones to discover new possibilities and create new horizons.
We center our community on the belief that others should be treated in a way that demonstrates an appreciation of their value.
We model the value that developing order, self-control, discipline and purposeful direction in one’s life provides a framework for achieving goals and reaching dream
We seek to believe and have confidence in each other and in ourselves, recognizing that trust is the cornerstone of all relationships, partnerships, community and life.
We create a safe space that emphasizes the importance of generosity, empathy, compassion, joy, and selflessness in growing personally and building community.
