Ontario Educational Championship Team is a group of community members from a variety of sectors in Ontario. We work together to increase the awareness, participation, and the success of youth in care at all levels of education, while preparing them for employment.
There are 21 teams across Ontario with the same goal!
Some of the activities that our partnership undertakes to help youth in extended society care include:
- Career and lifestyle visioning activities through photo and video projects
- Work closely with local employment agencies to assist with job placements and skill development
- Implement post-secondary peer based programs and community based service-learning programs
- Work in partnership with local school boards to ensure education success
- Support foster families through sharing relevant information
