Justice Fund Pilot Program A Crash-Course In Life Skills For Youths From Vulnerable Neighbourhoods
According to the CBC, a campground in Saint George, Ont., is the site of a unique 12-week pilot program for teens from Toronto's most vulnerable neighbourhoods. The Justice Fund Pilot Program is organized by a team that includes the Tim Hortons Foundation and Noah "40" Shebib — the global music powerhouse and producer of many of superstar Drake's hits.
Attending the camp are 38 boys and girls between the ages of 13 and 18. Every Saturday for three months, the youths get a crash course in a wide range of new skills — from archery and music production, to astronomy and rock climbing.
The mission plan is to give them access to opportunities and experiences through structured camp-based learnings, all aimed at helping them drive change in their personal lives as well as in their communities.
