Moorelands Kids Impact Report

Since 1912, we have transformed the lives of 132,250 children and youth.

Our primary objective is to empower kids with the tools they need for success and prepare them to meet the challenges of adolescence and adulthood.

Our leadership programs, using the Moorelands Kids’ Habits & Qualities, offer year-round experiences where kids can learn, practice and benefit from valuable life and leadership skills. We set the stage for kids as young as six to become leaders – first of themselves and then in their communities.

Our Objectives

Moorelands Kids’ leadership programs for Toronto children and youth-in-need have four overarching objectives.

Through fun programming based on a positive youth development framework, we aim to provide Toronto kids age 6 – 18 with:

  1. Opportunities to develop self-awareness and confidence;
  2. The experience of positive connections with peers and adult role models;
  3. The opportunity to develop Moorelands Kids’ Leadership Habits & Qualities (including respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, trustworthiness, and citizenship);
  4. The understanding that these habits and qualities are applicable outside of Moorelands and prepare them to succeed.
