Meet Randy and Mbombo: two of Ottawa’s future leaders

< 1 MIN READ

United Way partner Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa teaches soft skills like goal setting, self-esteem, mentorship and volunteerism with the Leaders 4 Life program. Youth like Randy and Mbombo have a safe place to go after school that encourages community involvement, helping others, and being a positive role model for younger kids.

What I’m looking forward to in my future is the fact that I can take the skills that I’ve learned to surpass the expectations that other people have.

United Way Ottawa invests in critical hours programs like the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa to ensure kids have a safe place to go after school. Since 2011, 65,767 kids in Ottawa had access to summer camps, homework clubs and after school programs where they can learn, play and grow. At United Way, our goal is to make sure every kid graduates.
