100 Teens Who Care Oakville
What do we do?
Our objective is to get Oakville Teens (aged 13-18) further involved in their community through our events. A board of teens organize each event, typically we have 3 over the school year in fall, winter & spring. Each event is 1-hour max in length. At this meeting, teens are expected to come with $10 of their own money. Two teens who choose to be further involved in the event will pitch a local charity. Then participants will vote for the charity they think deserves the donation. Therefore the winning charity earns a $1000 donation from us (100 teens x $10 = $1000 donation).
As teens, we understand it is difficult to donate lots of money as we have very limited funds, which is why this is the perfect opportunity to become involved with a larger donation. We appreciate each and every participant so much as their donation makes such a difference!
