My Message

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

I have always been more of a creative person. I focused on music and art for most of my childhood, and never considered myself very coordinated when it came to sports. I have been boxing at West End Athletic Club for around 8 months now, and in that time I have really fallen in love with the sport. I was surprised by the amount of determination and discipline that boxing has brought out in me. 

I volunteered at an elementary school for a few years while studying at University. I tutored students ranging from 6 to 12 years old in Math, Reading, Language, Music, Art- whatever they needed help with. I tried to come up with innovative ways to teach the material that would not only engage the kids, but encourage them to pursue their interests further. I strongly believe in the positive change that comes from giving youth access to education. So, when I heard through my gym about the opportunity to fight in support of such an incredible cause, I knew I had to be a part of it. 

“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.
