|PARKDALE SCHOOL EARNS SUPPORT FROM NATIONAL BANK|
MONTREAL, FEBRUARY 23, 2016 – The Community Learning Centre at Parkdale Elementary School in St. Laurent was one of 186 schools or youth programs in Canada to earn the support of National Bank’s One for Youth program.
The 186 programs selected will share $1 million in funding.
Parkdale submitted their Qu'est-ce qu'on mange? initiative which focuses on health and well-being through social entrepreneurship and community engagement. Through this project, Parkdale will give children the tools to access and create nutritious meals and provide a service in their community by donating meals to families in need. In doing so, the project will be providing the opportunity to learn French language skills and gain entrepreneurial skills.
The One for Youth program, which is in its third year, aims to provide tangible support for youth, from birth to university, to build a better world. Across Canada, more than 30,000 young people will benefit.
