Our Program & The Youth Involved
Our program is designed with children in mind, we want to bring education, sport, and mentorship to areas where they are not readily available for the youth that need it the most. We are aiming to reach Indigenous youth, specifically Urban Indigenous youth, who lack sufficient opportunity to engage in all sports activities. Our aim is to provide quality training and guidance for youth who would otherwise not have these opportunities.
Have organized and coached seven football camps for youth, some of which are non-profit for at risk youth and Indigenous communities. Paintball camps and sandwich drives- which got youth involved in making and handing out sandwiches to the homeless shelters and have organized backpack drives for Scott Collegiate.
We want to provide a safe and healthy environment for troubled youth, lower income families, and the Indigenous and Metis youth in the community and on reserves through our company. We would be working with social services and government youth programs to reach as many children as possible. We aim to deliver a program that emphasizes the importance of education, sport and health and life skill mentorship to youth who would not have the opportunity to access this knowledge in a smaller, more focused group or with one-on-one learning. We will take in account the child’s learning needs and make accommodations as needed to deliver this program affectively.
Growing up I was very much imbedded in the gang-life mentality and know how easy it is to fall into, but how hard it is to get out of – it is important for me to help youth create a different path for themselves. I play professional football in Regina with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and I work as a youth worker during the off-season. Between my professional and personal experiences, I believe I have the proper knowledge to help youth succeed. I am a three-time Mosaic community player award winner, People Choice nominee have held and organized annual backpack drives at Scott Colligate and basketball events to bring awareness to bullying. In the fall of 2020, I organized and delivered a non-profit football camp for inner city youth – Reggie City Football as well as a touch football league, which both had an incredible turnout which drives my passion to continue this, knowing how important and impactful it is. I have done numerous charity events and work with the homeless and have a hat program New Era designs that I sell while using part of the proceeds to fund the programs for kids’ sports. My passion is changing the lives of children who are going down the wrong path using sport – football changed my life and I know how possible and powerful it is when you find a new passion and purpose.
