415 Summer Youth Programs

Thanks to a generous donation from the City of Toronto, we will host a Basketball Drop every Wednesday evening and a Day Camp for children and youth from Tuesday to Friday. These programs provide young people from under-resourced parts of our neighbourhood with meaningful activities, connections and mentorship. 

 

"In the first couple of weeks, we've seen the positive impact of our program. Some of the children we've had the privilege of working with have stepped out of their comfort zone. We've had kids that were reluctant to tell us their name on the first day who are now sprinting to come and see us.

The typical day consists of a shoot-around period where the youth can get some shots up before programming. We then have a period of life skills where we emphasize topics such as leadership, mental well-being, motivation, and community safety." (Continue Reading Here)

"While every child in our art camp is unique in their own way. If I could describe them all in one word... I'd say they're IMAGINATIVE! These kids are full of energy and creativity and are just craving an artistic outlet.

 

For me, the memorable moments are when I get to check in on each participant and explore their interests through the art medium they're using that day. I've discovered that these girls have many gifts and potential to pursue artistic pathways. What is memorable for me is having the opportunity to nurture these children's talents"
