culture and creativity within Toronto."
The partnership with Toronto Eaton Centre will help The Remix Project
enhance engagement for youth participants and expand the program's
reach. Toronto Eaton Centre also looks forward to working with Remix on
mentorship opportunities and engaging graduates for upcoming projects
within the Centre.
"While researching philanthropic partners, our goal was to find an
organization that is truly making an impact within our community," said
Susan Allen, General Manager, Toronto Eaton Centre. "Remix's programs
give back directly to the youth and culture within our city, both of
which are at the core of what Toronto Eaton Centre stands for. We see
