Description & Details Start2Finish’s mission is to break the cycle of child poverty by providing ongoing educational support to Canada’s at risk children throughout their school years, nurturing mind, body and social health so they are empowered to succeed and become role models for change.
This mission is achieved by our dedicated volunteers and mentor Coaches. The programs at Start2Finish encourage literacy, healthy active living, and play.
The program runs from October to May one afternoon a week for two hours. Volunteers support students in various fitness and reading activities.
