A call from our Community Centers: Our youth in NDG need your help
Youth have been disproportionately affected by the Covid-19 pandemic as it impedes their ability to attend classes and succeed in school. Their situation becomes even more precarious when their families face poverty, language barriers, and lack of access to their own educational supports.
Right here in NDG, our four community organisations are dedicated to the well-being of our youth and provide much needed activities that target their educational development and physical health. The organisations are currently closed for in-person activities but every day, skilled staff lead online homework sessions for youth whose families cannot help.
Unbelievably, financial support for these extended homework program hours is not covered by current funding, and this essential link to families is in dire risk of ending unless our community can find the necessary $6000/centre ($24000 total) to cover the cost of homework-help staff tutors. The pandemic has already led to record drop out rates and we are asking for your help to give these children the opportunity to succeed.
