Variety Village and Jumpstart Canada are pleased to offer a Para Sport Mentoring Program to increase the awareness and opportunities of para sport activities to youngsters with physical disabilities, their families and peers throughout the Greater Toronto area.
4 Paralympians + 16 Para Participants
Variety Village is an inclusive sports and training facility in the south west corner of Scarborough. We are 65 years young and proud to be the facility that started the sporting career of many Paralympians including: Adam Lancia, Tracey Ferguson and Abdi Dini to name a few.
Variety Village is looking to recruit and match four Paralympians with 16 para participants and together engage in five one hour sport sessions introducing the youngsters to a number of para sport activities. It is from these sessions, the Paralympians and the youngsters share their experiences at two community events helping to ignite passion for sport for youngsters with physical disabilities.
There is a commitment should you consider applying; five mandatory para sports activities sessions at Variety Village by early 2017, two half-day community school events plus a one day event at Variety Village by May of 2017.
