My Message

I am participating in the Victory Charity Ball to raise money for the Pinball Clemons Foundation Ambassador School Program.

When I recently started boxing in the later part of 2018 at the West End Athletic Club. I wanted to train like I was going to fight, I knew that would be the best way to learn and achieve the best results. When I heard about the Victory Charity Ball, I thought it would be a great opportunity to measure where I was at so far.

After learning more about the event, I felt even more motivated to be apart of it all. Once being a youth who almost didn't finish high school, and also volunteering for a few years with youth, the ambassador school program really spoke to me. We all can understand how important these years are for anyone. They shape who you can become moving into adulthood, so the more positive influences and guidance one can achieve at this time is crucial. It is a great cause because the ambassador school program focuses on the youth so that they may realize their own potential regardless of their circumstances in life.

I have always been a very athletic person, I always managed to stay active whether it would be playing a sport in a league or even just simply lifting weights. I always try to have at least one sport that I am involved in.

“The Ambassador Program is an alternative school program designed to assist youth, who have dropped out of high school, to reengage with learning. The aim is to help them complete their Ontario Secondary School Diploma, gain valuable life skills, and successfully move into a post-secondary school environment.

The program currently services 15 full time youth, and 4-part time youth, with one Teacher and one Child and Youth Worker. Students work at their own pace on academic courses and participate in a life skills program which focuses on skill building for youth to live independently and successfully. These life skills include learning the basics of cooking and nutrition, physical health and wellness, financial literacy, and personal life management.

Students also engage in community support activities, volunteering, and a program called the “SpeakOut” where they travel to grade 7 and 8 classrooms across the city of Toronto and deliver a “stay in school” presentation based on their own life story and life choices.  Ambassador Students have spoken to nearly 30 000 grade 7-8 students over the past 10 years.  The core philosophy of the Ambassador Program is that every student can learn, achieve their goals, and realize their potential regardless of their socio-economic status, upbringing, or experiences.
