A LOOK INTO
THE EDUCATION FUND
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.
We provide support in the form of scholarships at George Brown College (GBC) that are awarded to marginalized and racialized students based on academic achievement, financial need, and community involvement.
We have also partnered with GBC to develop a micro-credential program series that enables learners to explore and develop a wide range of skills to work in a variety of career choices within their desired field. Within 15-weeks students are equiped with the tools to establish an understanding of key skills to thrive and excel in a 7-week paid internship that leads directly to a career.
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.
The Pinball Clemons Foundation provides the following support through the Education Fund:
Micro-credential programming at George Brown College
Academic scholarships at George Brown College
Bursaries and books for students participating in our Mainstream Bursary Program model
Literacy support to ensure students are reading at grade level
