Who we are

At Moorelands, we recognize the inherent value of all children and youth. We work with Toronto's children and youth affected by poverty, to provide them with positive and fun experiences to help strengthen their confidence, competence, character and to build positive connections to peers and caring adults.

Why support us?

Moorelands teaches kids from low-income, Toronto neighbourhoods, the 21st Century skills they need to be outstanding leaders and engaged citizens. We provide opportunities for kids to develop and practise critical thinking and decision making; emotional intelligence; and interpersonal skills, including: communication, conflict resolution, creative problem solving, strategic thinking, influencing skills and teamwork.

Moorelands Community Services

Our fun, 'intentional' programs promote: 1)physical activity; 2)life skills development; 3)character development; 4)cultural competence; 5) tolerance and appreciation for diversity;6) connections with peers, role models and community.

We know the social cost associated with poverty is high — we also know that programs such as those offered by Moorelands make a real and measurable difference. We know that you can make this happen! Raise a minimum of $150 and we'll refund your registration fee after the event.
