Community Living Ontario

Many youth who have an intellectual disability long to lead a typical high school life with friends, to have a part-time job and to participate in extracurricular activities with their peers. Community Living Ontario’s Student Links initiative assists youth across the province to gain confidence and create opportunities for themselves by connecting with mentors who share similar interests and passions. Over the next few weeks leading up to Giving Tuesday, we will be featuring a number of success stories from this initiative and showcasing how volunteering one’s time or making a small donation make a lifetime of difference to a youth in Ontario.

Omar’s dream of becoming a wedding photographer is now in sight and Jay’s plan to start an IT company one day has real merit. The opportunities are endless for youth who have an intellectual disability when they have the support of their community.

Community Living Ontario asks you to join the movement for inclusion and to make a difference in the lives of youth in your community.

Consider a gift of $5, $10 or $25, all of which will make a difference in helping to promote the inclusion of youth with intellectual disabilities. Consider donating your time and sharing your talents with a student in your community.
