The Lives We Impact

Since the Second Chance Foundation's inception, it has provided numerous youth with scholarships.

One of our recipients was on the Dean’s honour list at the University of Guelph;

One of our recipients graduated from the University of Toronto;

One of our recipients commenced taking his first College course while in-custody.  He subsequently completed his college diploma while in-custody.   Upon release from custody he attended a Bachelor of Science Program at University.   He has since completed his Bachelor of Science and has been accepted to Teacher’s College.  This individual has gone above and beyond in terms of giving back to the community as he has been involved with various charity organizations assisting in his community. 

One of our recipients took a few college courses while in-custody as a youth and upon release from custody attended University.  In addition to attending University, he was on the University football team;

One of our recipients is completing a Police Foundations program at College with the intention of becoming a Police Officer / Detective; and

One of our recipients completed a bricklayer program and now owns and runs his own company

These individuals are clear examples of how young people can accomplish so much if given the support and opportunity.   Our goal is to broaden that support and continue to make opportunities happen.
