La Corde Summer Camp Info:

“The goal of la Corde, which is part of the Youth Unlimited organization is that kids of the impoverished Cloverdale community will achieve academic success as the best way of escaping a cycle of poverty. All programs are directed to enable these children to achieve that goal, by addressing the areas that could cause them to stumble. Every weekday, 50 Cloverdale youth frequent the centre, receiving breakfast, lunch, after-school homework assistance, music lessons, life skills training, goal setting & nutrition workshops, and mentoring.”

splash_YU_logoThere will be about 70 kids coming from extreme poverty in the largest public housing project in QC. One of Montreal’s 19 burroughs, Pierrefonds, has a population of 68,000 (the population of Portland). 40% of the population of Pierrefonds are immigrants (the population of Windham, Raymond, and Gray combined)! Most immigrants are from Egypt, Haiti, India and various African countries.
