Free to Grow
The Free to Grow Program nurtures the physical, social, emotional, and mental well-being of children and youth by funding recreational and life-skill opportunities such as sports, arts, camps, driver's education training and leadership development. Beginning in September 2020, Free to Grow will also be funding mental health counselling for children and youth, as well as providing educational workshops for parents.
The Scholarships Program provides financial support for post-secondary education to remove some of the barriers for youth. The criteria for recipients does not focus solely on academic standing but rather on life achievement and goals in the face of difficult life situations. In 2019, we awarded 18 scholarships to post secondary students, with the highest areas of study being science, health care and social work.
