    TRUST15 Supporting Youth Success

    Trust 15 Youth Community Support Organization is a registered non-profit based in Rexdale. 

    The annual fundraising gala on April 5, 2014 is hosted by CTV Canada AM host Marci Ien and Tracy Moore, host of Cityline. The keynote speaker is Michael “Pinball” Clemons, one of Canada’s greatest athletes and community leaders.

    Trust 15 gives youth the social and educational tools to succeed by connecting them with positive role models and mentors. The program helps young people find the keys to unlock their future. They are empowered in the areas of leadership, confidence, self-esteem, and resilience. Trust 15 operates three school-year programs: Ladies on the Rise, Men of Distinction, and Girls on the Rise. It also operates summer programs.

    As a result of the success of the First Annual Fundraiser in 2013, Trust15 has been able to pilot the Girls on the Rise program to promote literacy and positive expression among girls ages 8 – 12. They are hoping hope that your generous support will allow them to expand the outreach of youth programs, empowering future leaders and cultivating community development.

    How can you help? Show your support of the project and youth of Rexdale by purchasing a ticket for the gala of $70.00. In partnership with DAREarts Foundation, any financial donation made, in addition to ticket purchases, will receive a charitable tax receipt – Canadian charitable reg. no. 88691 7764 RR0002.
