The vision of Toronto Youth Development (TYD) is focused: the development of a thriving, supportive, healthy and safe community for children and youth through corporate, public, & online donations.
The mission of Toronto Youth Development- Registered Kids & Children’s Charity is to empower at-risk, inner-city youth, through education, sports and character development, so that they may go on to lead productive lives and create healthy families.
TYD fulfills its mission by offering character development programs (ASE) and activities in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere that promotes academic, cultural, social, and personal growth of youth. TYD strives to enable these children: young boys and girls to become self-confident people of strong character with a positive vision of the future and the necessary skills to achieve their goals. Recognizing the profound dignity and uniqueness of the individual, TYD believes every child is a gift worthy of our highest efforts and deepest respect.
HOPE – Making dreams possible
INTEGRITY – Creating honest and responsible youth
NURTURE – Children need to be loved
RESPECT – Dignity of human life and respect for the environment
LEADERSHIP – Building generous leaders to serve the community
Children from Kindergarten to grade 8 have benefited from TYD’s generosity; their volunteer staffs have been both friendly and dedicated to helping the kids of Regent Park achieve their full academic potential.
