A donation of $10 per month will help change a child’s life. It can provide access to:

  • Literacy Programs for Primary School children through remedial reading classes and one-on-one lessons
  • Dance and Music Classes that enable a child to find a safe environment in which to express themselves
  • Sports and Recreational Activities including physical education and the opportunity to play team sports competitively against neighbouring schools
  • Vocational Training which provides children with lessons in a skills trade and support from community centre staff

Most importantly, your donation provides youth with the skills that will allow them to prosper and become positive members of their community. Someone from Jamaica and someone from Canada can both be united through the emotion of a dance performance, the joy of a child learning to read, the success of a young athlete and the beauty in a skilled trade-these connections transcend oceans, languages and cultures and remind us that we are a part of a larger community.

Your donation is about much more than just providing youth with access to programs. It is about providing them a safe haven in which to express themselves; a space in which to find out who they are; to develop their sense of self-belief and confidence in their future; build a sense of community with their peers and gives them a voice.
