Areas of Focus
Although The Sandbox Project maintains a very small staff, its capacity is derived from within its partnership network as well as the talents of its dedicated volunteer board and working groups. The majority of Sandbox’s activities are driven by five multi-disciplinary working groups, each of which tackles a key focus area:
Each working group (aside from the youth-oriented Young Canadians Roundtable on Health) comprises subject matter experts from within the realms of academia, government, non-profits and corporate Canada, as well as interested youth and families. As the working groups collaborate and share resources, they are able to carry out activities that could never be accomplished by one organization on its own. Sandbox’s successes are the result of many players who care about children's health, working together.
