Every kid deserves the chance to succeed—no matter where they grow up.
You can create opportunities for local youth to learn and grow—putting them on the path to success in school, and in life.
- In some Ottawa neighbourhoods, almost 50% of kids start school without a solid foundation for learning.
- Students in low-income communities may lack access to safe, affordable, positive after-school activities.
- Without these programs, kids are more likely to drop out of school—continuing the cycle of poverty.
- Participation improves their grades, self-esteem, relationships, and ultimately, helps them reach their full potential.
