To work diligently and thoughtfully in providing financially disadvantaged youth in the community with greater access to organized amateur sport in conjunction with their academic endeavours.
Through sports, children are able to establish a pattern of physical activity that continues on into adulthood, helping to build self-esteem, leadership skills and social skills. With the financial support of A4K, these children can turn their participation in sports into a greater learning tool, where they can discover team-building skills, learn how to cope with failure, increase their confidence and build character.
The support of A4K is available province-wide for children ages 5 to 18 who are currently enrolled in school. Registration fees are paid for any sport recognized by Sport BC, up to an annual maximum of $600 per child (considerably higher than other sport funding charities)
Through A4K, hundreds of BC children have the opportunity to follow their dreams through sport.
