Enhancing Life and Learning for Students

Arts-based experiences, life skill development and resources for students facing barriers.


Since 1989 the Foundation For Education has provided students with over-and-above opportunities to expand their creative potential and critical life skills.

Their work is guided by:

COMMUNITY – They believe that students should have equitable access to the opportunities that we provide and, through community support, they strive to remove financial barriers that keep them from fully engaging in school life.

CREATIVITY – They believe that the future requires creativity and a commitment to learning and deeper understanding. They aspire to be creative in the work that they do and to inspire creativity in students.

COLLABORATION – They believe in the value of working with others and achieving together what may not be possible alone. Along with their education and community partners, they aspire to bring a collaborative spirit and strategy to all that they do so that students may be more fully served.

COURAGE – They believe that skills are as important as knowledge and that the arts are fundamentally invaluable in creating a whole person. They aspire to be courageous by speaking about their critical importance and to boldly innovate new ways of expanding the impact of their ‘hands-on’ approach to learning.

The Foundation is a charitable organization serving youth in Huron and Perth Counties (Ontario, Canada) and has its own Board of Directors of educators and community members from throughout the region.
