Slap Shot Hockey Program

Slap Shot is a free five-week outdoor hockey/character development program designed to reduce social isolation and build self-esteem in children in grades 4-6. Slap Shot provides a fun and inclusive introduction to the game of hockey and positive character development skills for children whose ability to participate in recreational sport is limited due to financial and cultural barriers.

 Character Community Podcast Program

A bi-weekly podcast, broadcast on Youtube and on streaming platforms, this program addresses social justice issues including racism, discrimination, and mental health by providing opportunities for children and youth to share conversations of lived experiences and have their voices heard. This program educates and engages youth to work together to gain knowledge, develop strategies, make positive life decisions, and become community leaders.

Music Alive Program

Promoting collaboration and positive mental health through character in the arts, Music Alive offers virtual music education sessions to elementary and secondary school students. Providing instruction in several genres of music, guest artists arrange a learning activity where all students are guided to think creatively, work collaboratively, and develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of the positive mental health benefits of participating in the musical arts.

In 2019, we delivered our programs to 13,614 children,  youth and seniors across York Region
