Unprecedented scholarships awarded and other corporate giving

This quote from our 2016-17 Annual Report says so much about our youth who keep reaching:  “This past year 44% of our clients were not in school prior to entering treatment”.  In the 2016-17 academic year, we had 129 clients attend classes while in treatment.  Together they achieved:

  • 222 credits
  • 13 high school graduations
  • 2 post-secondary courses completed
  • 968 community hours completed

Here are some  examples of some of those students, and their education goals:

Algonquin College
Soren – 1st year Business & Accounting
Shlomo – 2nd year Business Marketing
Asha – 1st year Pre-Health Sciences
Allie – 1st year Personal Support Worker

Carleton University
Josh – 2nd year, Honours BA/Psychology

We are so incredibly proud of these youth who have recognized the importance of pursing a post-secondary education, seeing it as a stepping stone to bigger and better things.
