“And at [13-14 years old] you really want to go outside and discover the world, but you may not end up at the right place. It’s really good to put a program in that spot so it keeps you away from that.”
Israel Panda, Youth Volunteer at the Debra Dynes Community House.
The Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) is an agency of the Government of Ontario, and one of Canada’s largest granting foundations. OTF awards grants to some 1,000 projects every year to build healthy and vibrant Ontario communities. Each grant tells a story and helps create significant opportunities for positive community change.
OTF has awarded the OCH Foundation a grant that will provide safe, after-school spaces for at-risk youth. Click here to learn more about Keeping Youth Connected.
