The purpose of the Scouts Canada Foundation’s No One Left Behind Fund is to ensure that any child, who wishes to belong, can participate in Scouts Canada’s programs. Specific programs supported by the fund include but are not limited to: financial assistance to youth for membership and participation, program development, leader recruitment and training, and to assist with the overall expansion of Scouting across Canada.
Nous croyons que l’éducation à l’Eco-Citoyenneté responsable doit débuter tôt auprès de l’enfant afin que son éveil ainsi que sa prise de conscience face à son empreinte écologique deviennent alors une réalité. L’approche visée est donc d’appliquer la notion des 4R (Repenser, Réduire, Réutiliser et Recycler) développée par Madame Chantal Beaudoin.
A) Éduquer la population afin de repenser sa façon de consommer ; B) Réduire le nombre de jouets/jeux envoyés dans les sites d’enfouissement; C) Réutiliser en donnant une seconde vie aux jouets/jeux ; D) Recycler un plus grand nombre de jouets/jeux.
WHO ARE WE? For 15 years, Joe’s Place -Generation Hope Youth Inc. (www.joesplaceyouthcentre.ca) has been providing hope for youth who are hungry to be mentored, challenged and given opportunities regardless of race, religion or income level. Although Joe’s Place started small in a warehouse apartment, the donation of a 24 000 sq/ft building has made us one of Canada’s largest youth centres. We are a non-profit, registered charity and rely on donations to keep running. We provide a safe and fun environment on weekend nights that includes video games, pool tables, music and events. A 30-foot tall, 4 sided climbing wall challenges youth to achieve new heights. In addition to drop-in nights, Joe’s Place offers work skills training, small groups, a teen mom’s support group and a dance team. We sponsor youth to attend camps and retreats as well as day trips to various sporting and community events. We are focused on relationships and committed to building character and leadership skills in youth.
Our goal is to provide a new playground and upgraded play surface that will ensure a safe and fully inclusive environment for all the children that attend South Slope Elementary and the BCSD (British Columbia School for the Deaf) as well as families within the community.
