In Ontario less than half of children living under the care or supervision of the child welfare system complete high school by the age of 21 and than a quarter of those go on to pursue post-secondary education. These numbers are vastly different than the overall statistics of 75% of Ontario youth finishing high school and 40% going on to post-secondary studies. Through the bursary program, Peel Children’s Aid Foundation is committed to changing these numbers and giving more children and youth in care access to post-secondary education, and skill building opportunities to help them set goals and work towards success. We have seen great success with these programs.
 
Thank you again for your generosity which is making a difference in the lives of vulnerable youth in Peel Region! 
 
 
Sincerely,
 
Renae Addis
