Creating infinite possibilities for youth
Thank you, Scotiabank!
Children and youth with sight loss are among the most excluded group in the education system. Together, with Scotiabank, we’re breaking down these barriers through life-changing programs like the Infinite Youth Project.
Thanks to Scotiabank’s generous support, participants are developing skills including goal-setting, decision-making, teamwork, self-advocacy, interpersonal communication, and social skills, while also expanding their peer network.
These programs, which are uniquely designed and fully accessible, make it possible for children and youth to build their confidence and develop critical skills that will set them up for future success in education and employment.
Thank you, Scotiabank, for empowering youth to lead fuller and more independent lives without barriers!
