Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa Charitable Foundation

Andrea Tomkins, blogger at a peek inside the fishbowl, has recently joined the Board of Directors of the new Youth Services Bureau (YSB) of Ottawa Charitable Foundation.

The YSB Charitable Foundation has set a goal to raise $750,000 in 2010-2011.

This campaign will help:

  • Rebuild the Downtown Services and Drop-in Centre, where YSB’s street front programs are offered;
  • Support mental health programs for youth;
  • Fund employment programs that help young people get their first jobs;
  • Expand housing and shelter services to accommodate street-involved youth; and
  • Sustain community reintegration programs for youth in conflict with the law.

Andrea is one of 50 community leaders asking 50 individuals to donate $50 to the YSB Charitable Foundation.

If you're able to make a donation to help her reach her target of $2500, please do so, in any amount, using this form so she may track the progress to reaching her target.

For more information about this initiative, please read her post "I've got a big favour to ask."
