For many children and young adults who have been affected by abuse and neglect, focusing on an education can be a difficult task. The Foundation believes education is a powerful tool that allow children and young adults to achieve their full potential and shape their future.
Dare to Dream Bursary Program
We believe that a lack of funds should not stand in the way of the educational aspirations for young adults who have already faced far too many obstacles at such an early age. The Dare to Dream Bursary Program provides funds to young adults who are in care, or formerly in the care of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa to assist with their post-secondary education tuition. This program gives them the opportunity to pursue their life goals and break the cycle of abuse and neglect.
Scotia Capital Leap to Learning Program
Children and young adults who have faced the hardships of abuse and neglect may experience learning setbacks while in school. The Scotia Capital Leap to Learning Program provides funds for tutoring to children and young adults to assist with their progress through all stages of education.
