The Generosity of the Sailing Community!

The Toronto International Boat Show is a perfect opportunity for the volunteers of Broad Reach to express their personal thanks and appreciation to the many members of the boating community who support our work –  the development of youth potential through the sport, science and experience of sailing.

Volvo Penta has donated a brand new engine for “Orca,” (a 12 m ‘Screamer’) plus a financial contribution to help with the installation of the engine. The Senior Management at Volvo Penta has also been generous in providing advice and guidance for future fundraising activities in the corporate sector.

Canadian Yachting  has published an article on Broad Reach in their latest issue, and Ontario Sailor and Boating Ontario have agreed to Publish articles in the future.

The Oakville Yacht Squadron, the Mimico Yacht Club, the Royal Canadian Yacht Club, the Etobicoke Yacht Club, and the Port Credit Yacht Club have all expressed interest in giving Broad Reach space in their regular newsletters to allow their membership to learn more about how Broad Reach is helping youth from disadvantaged circumstances experience the values that sailing can create. If sailors cannot support sailing, then who can!

As Broad Reach celebrates its 20th Anniversary in 2018, we deeply understand how essential the generosity of the sailing community has been in sustaining our work – not for one year, or two years, or three years, but for twenty years!

And we look forward to appreciating all that generosity when the date is 2023, when Broad Reach celebrates its 25th Anniversary – thanks to the continuing generosity of the sailing community!

 

Centre francophone de Toronto Nautical Experiences

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 [email protected].

 

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.
