Since 1982, Trinity has been creating “theatre outside of theatre” offering innovative, experiential programs that aim to give students the ability to balance their social, emotional, and ethical development with their need for academic achievement. Creating Communities We Want programs have been carried out in schools across Canada. Each year, Co-Directors Alan Richardson and Sandra Crockard train hundreds of Peer Leaders who in turn reach out to mentor literally thousands of their peers and create caring and safe school communities. Trinity develops Peer Leaders who are…

  • Self-aware and committed to self-development
  • Engaged in their community and work for its betterment
  • Compassionate and committed to social and environmental justice

Our Mission is to: … facilitate the development of communities across Canada where all voices are heard, purposeful opportunities are available to all and individuals have the resilience to overcome challenges and transitions in their lives. We believe there is a role for us all. 


Our Programs We have a wide range of programs available to schools and communities that include one day or afternoon workshops all the way to year-long peer mentorship programs! Creating Communities We Want is a series of programs in developing Peer Leadership in a school community. At present the series comprises of:

  • Peer to Peer – a Peer Mentoring program for transition students
  • Handling Conflict –  a Peer Mediation course for senior Peer Leaders for settling disputes formally and informally
  • Making Connections – a social/emotional development course for at-risk and underperforming students
  • The Capacity Cafe – a meeting of students, parents and school staff in a talking circle to discuss the issues and challenges of the school community

Visit to learn more about these programs, our one-day workshops, other school offerings for parents & community, and the Leadership Lab – our summer masters course in Peer Leadership. **Please Note: All of our programs are customized to your school community’s needs and timelines.
