Around the World Cooking Experience

Around The World Cooking Experience

The Around The World Cooking Experience is a cooking group for youth between the ages of 18 and 21 who have intellectual disabilities. The group will be strengths-based and goal-focused. It will not only help youth who have intellectual disabilities learn to cook, it will also increase their appreciation for cultural diversity.
Participants will also:

  • Increase their knowledge of healthy eating and kitchen safety
  • Increase socialization and cultural knowledge
  • Build cooking and teamwork skills
  • Enhance independence
  • Develop leadership skills.

This 10 week YouthLink program takes place at Grace Church, 700 Kennedy Road, beginning on Monday, September 17.  Each week the program will focus on a menu from a specific country. Participants will not only learn how to cook a basic meal from that country, they’ll also learn cultural and geographical facts.  The group experience promises to take us around the world, and will no doubt be the most cost effective means of world travel!
When:          Monday evenings from 5:00 – 8:00pm.
Where:         Grace Church, 700 Kennedy Road (just steps away from our main office at 636 Kennedy Road)
Cost:            Free 
*** There are ten spaces available ***
If you are interested in participating in the Around the world Cooking Experience, please contact Blair at 416 967 1773, ext. 259 for registration and interview.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our What’s Up Walk-In services are now being offered online through video-conferencing. We know this is a stressful time for everyone, and we want you to be able to continue to access our counsellors and clinicians in a safe and secure way so we are now offering you online video-conferencing counselling and support.


Our E-Counselling What’s Up Walk-In service will be open Monday – Friday until further notice. If you would be interested in booking one of our daily video-conferencing appointments for a counselling or support session with a clinician, call 416-967-1773 extension 222 and you will be connected to our Intake department. E-Counselling and support is also available for many of our other programs. Intake staff can provide you with more information if you are interested.


Although many of our staff are temporarily working off-site, all of our housing and residential programs continue to operate as usual.
