Drew Hildebrand “It takes courage to change” Partnerships

It can be an extraordinary challenge for at-risk teens to take the courageous and consistent actions to turn their backs on risky behaviours. The goal of the “It takes courage to change” Scholarships is to first encourage at-risk teens to take the initiative to find a more empowering life path. Partnership funds provide recognition and reward for graduating teens in Peel and Halton high schools who have successfully demonstrated positive change and turnaround initiative.
