Career development for kids
New skills and aspirations
Expanding Horizons sponsors extraordinary field trips, inspiring summer camps, and practical CPR and Red Cross certificate training sessions for inner-city students, from Grade 5 to 7. We believe that participating in career development opportunities helps transition our youth into responsible adults.
Examples of TCF Expanding Horizons programs:
We partner with Simon Fraser University’s (SFU) Surrey campus to provide summer day camps for student from Grades 5 to 7. We also fund a 10-year SFU feasibility study analyzing the effectiveness of Expanding Horizons. SFU summer day camps seek to remove the intimidation of university settings for these students, many of whom will be the first in their families to attend a post-secondary institution.
We have created mini-scholarships, which are set aside as tuition certificates, “redeemable” upon graduation from high school and for entry into post-secondary: Grade 5: $200, Grade 6: $300, Grade 7: $500; a total of $1,000 for students achieving perfect attendance over their three years of summer camp.
