"When something goes wrong, we all come together as one community in order to solve that problem"

TREVAUN DOUGLAS

As a resident of the Lawrence Heights neighbourhood, Trevaun has always been an advocate for his community. He started writing poetry in Grade 5 as a way to process the change and challenges he witnessed in Lawrence Heights. 

During high school Trevaun worked at the Lawrence Heights Community Centre and eventually he got a job with Toronto Community Housing to help youth gain employable skills and experience.

More recently, he has discovered his passion for film-making. In 2020 he put out his first documentary: Lawrence Heights Covid-19 Experience and has released a few others around important social issues.
