We run programs that engage youth in the Jane and Finch community in a holistic way. Our focus is on building leaders of tomorrow and we do this by creating programs such as after-school programs, basketball league and leadership development programs and many more. We want youth to have a space where they feel safe, supported and also challenged to be better.
We run a homework club where we help students from grade 1-8 with any homework they have. We create a space where students can get one-on-one help that they may not be able to get at school or often time at home. We are creating a place for students to get the help they may need with their school work and also form friendships with other students and mentors.
Spring + Summer Camps
Our Spring (March break) and Summer camps aare the highlight of all our participants. Our 6-week, full-day summer camp is a great way to connect and continue to engage with our youth. Games and activities are usually structured around a particular theme for the summer. We foster an environment where youth have a positive outlet during the summer.
We see the students in our program as future leaders and we invest time in building and encouraging them to raise up to this challenge. We do this through mentorship programs as well as offering our youth employment and honorariums opportunities during our summer camp season or throughout the year at our after-school programs. For some, this is their first paid work experience which empowers them for future job opportunities. For others, it is an opportunity to practice money management, and hopefully financial savings too.
Our Revolution Basketball League provides youth with the opportunity to learn and play basketball. The program teaches valuable life skills through athletic teamwork and provides a safe environment for youth to be with their peers, make new friends and develop mentoring relationships with our team of coaches.
