Please Help Us Help Youth In Our Neighbourhood


Dear community member,

The AMA Community Centre, alongside our partner United Way Ottawa, is raising funds to help vulnerable youth in Sawmill-Creek, one of Ottawa’s most at-risk neighbourhoods where our Centre is located.

Through the support of donors, youth will participate in a new after-school program, hosted at our AMA Community Centre and offering free homework help, snacks, and recreational programming.

Programs like these provide many benefits.  They help keep young people safe and off the street during the crucial hours after school.  They also help participants learn valuable skills, and improve their grades.  Youth in this program also build relationships to mentors that can help them be successful later in life.
