"Providing underserved youth in Manitoba the opportunities they need to fulfill their ultimate potential."


The True North Youth Foundation (TNYF) consists of three core programs, Camp Manitou, Project Eleven, and Winnipeg Jets Hockey Academy.

These programs empower underserved youth in our community to achieve their potential through consistent health, wellness, and activity programing that integrates into their school curriculum from kindergarten to grade twelve. The TNYF works closely with its team of motivated board members, True North employees, and our professional hockey teams and venues (Bell MTS Iceplex and Camp Manitou) to provide youth a positive, engaging and nurturing environment to grow.

While supporting youth, TNYF collaborates with external partners in business, government, education, and other sectors to reach more youth, more often in our community.
