Ready, Set, Goal! is our FREE Kid-led leadership program that invites children to challenge themselves and become agents of change within their own communities. While participating in our programs our Future Possibilitarians, who come from some of the most underserved communities in the Greater Toronto Area, develop a strong sense of self-worth, an optimistic approach to life and concrete social and academic skills that will set them up for success. RSG! is a program that uses inquiry-based and differentiated learning while connecting to the interests and lives of the child to develop a community service project that we call a Goal of Contribution.
Kids take on a lot of responsibility in joining the RSG! program and by completing a Goal of Contribution, but they are not in it alone. Over the course of the six-month program, Kids are matched with a trained volunteer called a KidCoach who will provide one-to-one support through the 24 phone call curriculum and the 4 Activity Days. Kids receive ongoing coaching through the process of delivering their Goal of Contribution while they involve friends, family, and other members of their community. In this program, there are no limits to what our Kids can do.
We know that Kids can change the course of the world, and with your support, we can continue to create Future Possibilitarians and empower our Kids to transform themselves and their communities; one goal at a time.
