TORONTO, ON (June 2, 2021) – Park Street Education announced today the launch of the Park Street Education Student Scholarship Fund and its associated fundraising campaign, providing full scholarships to elementary and high school aged children across Ontario. The main goal of the fund is to provide scholarship opportunities to children experiencing barriers to education so that no student is left behind, even at the youngest of ages. To deliver on this goal, Park Street is partnering with youth-based organizations, including its first community partner Big Brothers Big Sisters of Toronto (BBBST), to make the scholarship available to children within their community who may be facing obstacles to receiving quality education.
“We are excited to formally launch the Park Street Education Scholarship Fund and announce our first community partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Toronto,” said Julie Champagne, Cofounder & Head Teacher, Park Street Education. “The fundraising campaign will allow us to provide more full scholarships to youth facing barriers to education and acces
s to an equitable and engaging educational experience.”
In its inaugural year, Park Street Education provided full scholarships to eight students within the Greater Toronto Area, ensuring that quality education, technology, and resources were accessible. Following the positive feedback from students and their families, Park Street Education solidified its partnership with BBBST to extend its full scholarship program to Littles in Grades four to 10 across Ontario.
“Big Brothers Big Sisters of Toronto is proud to partner with Park Street Education,” said Leanne Nicolle, President & CEO, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Toronto. “Equitable access to education is a vital tool in a young person’s life that both organizations strongly believe in. We are thrilled that a number of our Littles currently participate in Park Street Education programs and look forward to watching more of our community participate, with the announcement of a new Scholarship Fund.”
Park Street Education, which was founded in 2020, believes that every child has the potential to succeed if given the tools to do so. The creation of the Park Street Education Student Scholarship Fund will continue to provide opportunities for children to thrive, regardless of socioeconomic background, geography, or learning style.
Donations to the fund open today (June 2) and will provide scholarships to youth for the 2021/2022 school year. All donations contribute to a youth’s full-time studies, educational resources, after school supplemental programs, and individual tutoring. To donate, please visit our online fundraising page.
