NEW: Paying it Forward Bursaries!

We are thrilled that Jason Roth and Cheryl Steadman Roth  have donated funding for bursaries which allow young people to attend our Summer and March Break programs.Those bursary applications are online now here. In the spirit of community-building, they have asked that when you receive a bursary, you also do something nice for someone else – take time to visit someone, make some soup or cookies for a neighbour, whatever makes sense to you and if you can or are willing, send us a picture or a little note to let us know what you did to pay it forward and what the bursary means to you. If you have received bursaries in the past, and you were thrilled for your family, drop us a line here and let us know. It all makes the world a better place!
