Presenting Projects:

Urban Youth Riding Project

Working with the Toronto Police Services, the Aboriginal Peackeeping Unit, the OPP, and the RCMP, The Urban Youth Riding Project reaches youth in some of Toronto's most disadvantaged neighbourhoods and rural youth from the Alderville First Nation. By connecting youth with horses, leadership and social skills are learned, and relations are improved with police in their neighbourhoods. We will make it possible for 12 youths to participate in the program.

Bikes Without Borders

Working with a non-government agency in Malawi, Bikes Without Borders will develop a pilot project to deliver new bikes and biked ambulances for HIV/Aids community care workers. We will help them to purchase more bikes and bike ambulances for their project.

Education Through Media

Mentored by the communications professionals, the project provides training and practical experience in creative multi-media projects for youth in the 13 Toronto priority neighbourhoods. It gives them a face and voice to express their lives, hopes, and dreams. We will help them buy video recording equipment so that they can produce high quality, web-based programming.
