Future Possibilities for Kids provides Free virtual programs to children ages 9-12 that support their mental well-being, and develop their confidence and leadership skills, all while connecting them to their community through tangible change.
Since 2001, FPK has been committed to making communities stronger and better, with kids leading the way. To date, over 5,000 young people have participated in their programs and gained essential life skills and confidence, developed self-awareness, and unlocked their leadership potential. These critical skills not only help kids succeed in these programs but they are also the essential building blocks for their future success.
This year, FPK will be increasing access to their programs in high priority neighbourhoods across Ontario, and sessions will run from November 14, 2021 until May 28, 2022.
Programs are delivered one-on-one between a child and KidCoach ― an adult volunteer that has been trained and background checked. The weekly 30 minute phone calls are flexible and scheduled by the participants. An Activity Book that guides the weekly calls in developing leadership skills is mailed ahead. Pairs will work on goals that focus on community action, passion projects and making a difference.
See examples of last years goals that were reached by kids at www.popfest.ca.
Sessions run Saturdays from 10:30am to noon and will start on the following dates. Each offers 4 virtual activity days, and all that’s required to participate is a device with an internet connection, a web camera, speakers/mic or a headset.
