Start2Finish’s mission is to break the cycle of child poverty by providing ongoing educational support to Canada’s at risk children throughout their school years, nurturing mind, body and social health so they are empowered to succeed and become role models for change.
This mission is achieved by our dedicated volunteers and mentor Coaches. The programs at Start2Finish, like the Running & Reading Club, encourage literacy, healthy active living, and play. As a result, students stay in school, build self-confidence and develop positive friendships with mentors and peers. With mentor Coaches, students discover the possibilities of a brighter future.

Volunteer role includes fitness activities and games, reading activities and discovering new words each week.
