This exhibition was created by high school students at George Harvey Collegiate Institute, just south of little Jamaica. 

















































































Engage-Design-Build is an experiential learning program for secondary school youth who are underrepresented in the design professions due to economic or racial barriers. Our goal is to open pathways to careers in architecture and design by applying skills from their school’s curriculum to a design project in their neighborhood.

The John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design (DFALD) will continue a partnership with the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) on a community project with George Harvey Collegiate Institute (GHCI), our 2021-22 pilot high school, near the Little Jamaica neighborhood. We will expand the program to two additional schools and create a guidebook in 2022-23. These steps will allow us to run the program in 2023-24 with all three schools.

Date: 2022
Location: Eglinton West, Little Jamaica, Toronto, ON
Project Coordinators: Otto Ojo and Michael Pioper
TDSB Partner: George Harvey Collegiate Institute
