VOLUNTEERS NEEDED for Ready, Set, Goal! Community Leadership Program beginning Fall 2018!

Ready, Set, Goal! is a community leadership program that involves Kids aged 9-12, from diverse, underserved Canadian communities who are matched with trained volunteers called ‘KidCoaches’. In this Kid-led program there are no limits to what Kids can do! Whether they are lobbying with government officials, soliciting support for an animal shelter or collecting supplies for the homeless, Kids are the CHANGE they wish to see in their community! KidCoaches are trained adult volunteers who support Kids in discovering that they can make a difference in their world, one goal at a time. As a KidCoach, you will have an opportunity to coach and support a Kid as they set out to accomplish a “Goal of Contribution” that positively impacts their community.
