MISSION CAPSULES:

Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing … support Tyndale St. Georges Community Centre in Montreal’s Little Burgundy neighbourhood as it works to ensure that each member of the community has the opportunities and skills to help realize their potential. The high school perseverance program matches students with peers or older students. Participants gain skills and confidence that lead to more regular school attendance and higher grades, and mentors gain awareness of individual differences and satisfaction from using their abilities to help others. Noah, a volunteer in the program says, “I think if we want a brighter future and a more intelligent community, then we have to help each other out and do our best to succeed together.”
