Creating a Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation (SPAR) Community of Learning

The topics that will be explored through the Safe & Welcoming Support Grants can be challenging to tackle as an organization. The purpose of the 2022-2023 SPAR Community of Learning is to create a space where people of diverse backgrounds can engage in honest dialogue and critical learning. And while the goal is to eventually have this space be co-imagined and curated by those who join, we have planned the first three sessions in an attempt to create community and facilitate critical conversations.
