PACT builds peace and hope in our communities by supporting and empowering youth, families, and seniors through integrated, best-practice programming.

SUPPORT PACT

Most PACT programs, including school garden field trips and summer camp, are provided free-of-charge to youth ages 13-21.

PACT does not receive government funding but instead, relies on generous financial assistance from businesses, foundations, service clubs such as Rotary, and individuals.

Please consider making a donation through Canada Helps or contact David Lockett at 647-993-0726 or david@pactprogram.ca.
