Victor grew up in a difficult home. He’s one of five children raised in a single parent family that struggled with housing, mental health and addiction.
He eventually went into CFS care.
In Grade 6, he joined an after school program that made a big difference in his life. He felt like he belonged.
Recognizing his potential, staff eventually asked him to join a summer learning program as a mentor himself.
“A lot of these kids wouldn’t have an opportunity to do anything in the summer,” says Victor. “It’s a safe environment with the opportunity to learn and grow and experience new things.”
