Our Impact to Date
I have made the Dean's List after completing my Bachelor of Social Work. I could not have gotten here without all of you—your support and guidance. In my first degree, I was told that University was not for me, that I would not excel in University, and here I am on the Dean's List. This is the greatest accomplishment and achievement for me. I am so grateful for every single one of you. From the bottom of my heart thank you. I am grateful for this program, and all the connections I've made here!"

About The Pinball Machine
Bringing Youth From Margins To Mainstream
Much like a ball in a pinball machine, marginalized youth can feel like they’re bounced around with no real sense of order or structure. PCF helps provide that stability to every aspect of their life, to help give marginalized youth the direction they so desperately need.
“We want to give young people the resources to control their lives, revel in independence, and change the trajectory of their families for generations.”
- Michael "Pinball" Clemons
Investing In Our Youth's Future
We work with Community Partners to identify marginalized youth in our communities who need support and provide mentorship and exclusive opportunities as they pursue their post-secondary education.
We are working to change the narrative of marginalized and racialized youth by allowing them to focus on their academics and successfully transition into their careers without the burden of student debt.
Youth Development Fund
We have partnered with several organizations with deep ties to community to help grow strong future leaders as they transition from high school to career.
