In the 2015/16 club year, $4,250 from our Education Fund went toward supporting the education of young women locally.
We have created an annual award to be given to a young woman in care or in transition from the care of York Region’s Children’s Aid Society. The award is to be offered through the Society’s Children’s Fund and commenced in April, 2016 with one $1,000 bursary.
We have also established an additional annual award or awards (if funds are available), to be given to one or more at risk or vulnerable young women who are without family connections. The awards are offered through York Region’s 360Kids organization. In 2017, we were pleased to be able to award bursaries to four deserving young women: one bursary for $1,000 and three for $750.
