Improving literacy
in communities

Goal = 130 Scholarships,
300 Bursaries & Books
175 Students in Careers

The Pinball Clemons Foundation works with Community Partners to identify the most marginalized youth in our communities and provide mentorship and exclusive opportunities as they pursue their post-secondary education.

Mentorship includes lifeskills development, mental health support, academic support, financial literacy, career preparedness, emergency support, group and one-on-one mentorship sessions run by our professional Mentorship Team.



Research shows that literacy is the cornerstone of academic success and an important social indicator for future employability. We want to improve literacy in communities where families face multiple barriers in effective early education.

The Pinball Clemons Foundation Mainstream Bursary Program model breaks down the barriers that prevent marginalized and racialized youth from succeeding in a post-secondary environment. The Foundation is 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. This investment directly correlates to their future success as independent adults.


Mentorship brings hope, perspective and possibilities for youth in the Margins to Mainstream Program. It literally shifts how young people see their possibilities and the energy with which they step into those opportunities.
