OUR EXPANSION PLANS
YOUTH SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Bootcamps for Change is partnering with shelters all over Canada to bring our valuable programs to youth experiencing homelessness in 2020! Stay tuned for updates and Impact Reports related to our exciting expansion.
Bootcamps for Change's vision is that all youth experiencing homelessness should have equitable access to participation in fitness programming. We make this possible by running weekly in-shelter fitness classes, fundraising through community events and running donation drives in partnership with local shelters. We are always looking for passionate volunteers to either run in-shelter programming or assist us with other community outreach initiatives. Contact us to learn more about how you can get involved. We are an independent nonpartisan social enterprise.
We have officially begun certifying youth through our Scholarship Program "Sweatier For The Better" as Personal Trainers and Group Fitness Instructors. Upon successful completion we provide them with assistance in securing job interviews, mentorship opportunities and hiring them to facilitate our weekly in-shelter classes. Our ultimate goal of closing the loop, by employing them to teach the classes in the shelters that we facilitate on a weekly basis.
