Be a game changer for Manitoba youth by supporting the TNYF’s online 50/50 draw and raising much-needed funds to ensure consistency in the foundation’s youth-centred programming throughout and beyond the pandemic.
More than 60,000 Manitoba youth continue to rely on the TNYF and its enriching educational, sports-based, and character-building programming – Winnipeg Jets Hockey Academy, Project 11 and Camp Manitou – to support and encourage them in achieving their full potential.
Though the pandemic significantly impacted funding this year, the foundation pivoted to provide virtual programming and support and was able to continue its positive impact on youth by introducing P11 to more than 1,000 new teachers, during a time when mental health resources have been greatly needed, implementing new health and safety protocols at Camp Manitou, and expanding the WJHA’s tutoring program as part of its virtual outreach.
