Trust 15 is a not-for-profit organization that provides inner city youth in the Rexdale/North Etobicoke area with programs that promote and facilitate positive behaviour, creative expression, and cooperative working skills. We exist to give 'at risk' kids in our community the social and educational tools to succeed in society. This is accomplished through mentoring and positive role model intervention.
Every week, Trust 15 opens its doors to 120 youth in the community through our Ladies on the Rise, Girls on the Rise, and Men of Distinction after school drop-in programs. We provide a safe, nurturing space for these young people to discuss and find solutions for real life issues surrounding self-esteem, conflict-resolution, abuse, violence, peer pressure, and family life.
We connect youth with mentors, professionals, and community leaders who network with the group members, teaching them crucial tips for success and inspiring them to believe in themselves, their talents, and their futures.
Our youth are having a summer to remember!
A big THANK YOU to Mayor John Tory for giving us a tour of City Hall and allowing us to sit in the mayor's seat!
"This for me, is the most important project going on in this city. It's proof positive that if we invest in our young people, we can make them successful beyond their own expectations and we can make this city safer."
