L’Arche Toronto’s Trying It on For Size (TIFS) program is an innovative well rounded approach to exploring how to live independently. Through a person-centered curriculum and experiential learning, participants increase their confidence and their capacity to discover their own places of belonging.
L’Arche Toronto was founded on intuition – a ‘gut’ feeling that the message of L’Arche had places to go. This same spirit of adventure and risk, and the conviction that all people have something to offer became the momentum that has manifested in the creative arts program of L’Arche Toronto, Sol Express. Sol Express joins together the movement, voice, music, art, theatre, and dance of individuals with developmental disabilities into creative expressions on themes such as hope and belonging.
