Program and Fund Supporters
ROTARY CLUB OF CHARLOTTETOWN ROYALTY
We are extremely excited to partner with the Rotary Club of Charlottetown Royalty to bring Teen Mentoring to more schools across Prince Edward Island. They have invested $90,000 over 3 years into a program that provides both the mentors and the mentees the opportunity to build the confidence to achieve more.
Government of PEI, Department of Social Development and Housing
We would like to thank the Government of Prince Edward Island for their ongoing support. The $28,000 annual grant they provide ensures we can provide quality mentoring services across Prince Edward Island.
We would like to thank MBS Radio for their ongoing support. By making us a Charity of Choice, MBS Radio has provided invaluable volunteer recruitment support throughout the year. We would like to thank the staff and management for their ongoing support on on air promotion of our need for volunteers.
United Way of Prince Edward Island
We are so excited to announce that we are powered by United Way of Prince Edward Island. In March of 2020, they began supporting Teen Mentoring on Prince Edward Island with a $25,000 per year grant for two years, which ensures the program will continue to grow and thrive.
We would like to thank the RBC Foundation for providing the funding to create Launch Your Life, a post-secondary and career readiness program for youth. Their 2 year, $25,000 grant will help youth aged 14-24 gain new skills, build self-confidence, make meaningful connections, & explore their options for the future.
Indigo Love of Reading Foundation
We want to thank the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation, for giving us a $12,500 Community Response Grant to purchase books for the youth in our community to read and learn during the COVID-19 pandemic. We can’t thank the staff at Indigo Charlottetown & Coles Summerside enough for all their help choosing a wide selection of books that would appeal to the youth in our programs! Thank you for helping ignite the love of reading for the youth we serve
CN Halifax Community Board
The CN Halifax Community Board is committed to making our community a better place to live, work, and play. Their generous donation of $10,000 in support of the Launch Your Life Program will provide Island youth with the skills and knowledge they need to thrive in their careers and in life.
We would like to thank Telus for their generous donation of $10,000 in support of Mentoring Boxes. Their support allows our Mentors and their Mentees, the opportunity to make a connection while doing something they both enjoy.
Guys Who Give a $hit
At the end of December, we were invited to make a presentation to the Guys Who Give a $hit group and we were thrilled that they chose to support us with a $10,000 donation. Mentoring is an essential service we must continue to provide to Island youth, especially in the middle of a pandemic. Their support will enable us to help more Island children reach their full potential by supporting our programs during this difficult time.
We were so excited to hold our Fall session of Launch Your Life Post-Secondary & Career Readiness program at Holland College. We would also like to thank them for providing a safe space for our sessions and for being supportive of the goals of the program from the start.
Rotary Club of Charlottetown
We would like to thank the Rotary Club of Charlottetown for their generous donations of $7,000 to refresh the In-School Mentoring boxes. Their donation will provide puzzles, board games, arts & crafts, and other supplies for the Activity Boxes that go to more than 20 schools across Prince Edward Island. Our In-School mentors make connections with their Mentees while engaging in shared interests like putting together a puzzle or making a craft.
Kiwanis Club of Charlottetown
We want to thank the Kiwanis Club of Charlottetown for their $1200 donation to support In-School Mentoring. A mentor’s support can help keep youth engaged in school, build self confidence, develop soft skills & facilitate continued academic achievement.
We want to thank our friends at the Rodd Royalty for hosting our Christmas party for our Bigs & Littles again this year. We can’t thank the staff & management enough for providing everything we needed – a craft room, space for our Photo Booth, a wonderful traditional turkey lunch and space for a visit from Santa.
