My Message

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

My coach was training a fighter who took part in VCB 2018, and brought the event to my attention. I had been training for about a year and wanted to have my first amateur fight while being part of a cause that would help others. The more I learned about the foundation behind VCB, the more I was interested in being part of such a great initiative

My workplace has strong affiliations to the Children’s Aid Foundation, which my team directly helps raise funds for annually. I also learned that both foundations work together, echoing the same principles of helping youth at-risk meet their scholastic goals and ultimately achieving their own independence.  

I’ve always lived an active lifestyle, but have never been part of a team or played organized sports. My hobbies include basketball (go raptors!) and travelling (next up on my destination bucket list is diving in Panama)

“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.
