Centre francophone de Toronto (CFT) is pleased to announce the addition of a new activity to its summer offerings; in partnership with Broad Reach Foundation, CFT now offers free nautical experience to young Francophones.
This will take place July 25 to 29, 2016, from 9 am to 3:30 pm. Inland training will take place on CFT’s site at 20, Lower Spadina. Participants will experiment with sail boats and various crafts on Lake Ontario. This free camp is aimed at newly arrived Francophones aged 13 to 17.
Space is limited: to register, contact Darline Drouinaud, at 416-203-1220, ext. 250 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
BroadReach Foundation for Youth Leaders, founded in 1998, provides team work and leadership training to youth at risk from dropping out of school. The foundation holds an office at 20 Lower Spadina since November 2015 which has allowed putting this new activity in place. ‘Broad Reach Foundation for Youth Leaders and Centre Francophone de Toronto have joined resources to engage youth in the sport, science and mastery of sailing with the objective of creating a greater social belonging, protection of the environment and learning through nautical experience and civic engagement’ declares Marguerite Pyron, BroadReach Executive Director; she adds ‘Our youth deserve positive opportunities and the support by the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport is deeply appreciated in that context. The Toronto sailing community has an outstanding record supporting our work and the new partnership with Centre Francophone de Toronto is wonderful inspiration for community engagement.’
CFT has offered free summer camps to newly arrived youth for the last six years. Activities vary yearly; a legal camp has been offered for the last three years. CFT would like to thank Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, as well as Legal Aid Ontario for their support.
