From the get go, we at PEACH have always been youth advocates and have wanted to ensure they feel connected to their community, as well as feel involved with it. After 25 years of this and dedicating ourselves to continually seeking out ways to innovate education, our aim to help the youth of Jane and Finch find new paths to explore and help shape them is only getting more direct and influential with further support from you and the community.

Where does this lead us.

We recently celebrated our 25th Anniversary, which was graciously hosted by the Oakdale Golf & Country Club, among the attendees were the faces that help coordinate PEACH today, as well as the innovators and past individuals that have shaped PEACH and paved the way for the work we do today. We see our past 25 years as such an accomplishment, and with partnerships and donors that have helped us through that time we will forever be thankful and indebted. But it is also just the beginning for us as we see it. Our programs continue to grow and our youth are helping us drive these programs into the right direction that will ensure them the greatest opportunities that we can offer them.

How can you help?

We wouldn’t be where we are today without PEACH advocates. And I take it that by reading this we may have you on board with what we strive for and aim to accomplish. For that we thank you, us at PEACH do truthfully appreciate all you do for us by advocating, so please just keep up the good work. This is an exciting time for PEACH and we hope you stay posted to all that we have in store for this coming summer.

So to reiterate the quote above:

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

Nelson Mandela.

And education is best served when those we educate actively participate in how they learn and what we bring to youths is both innovative and revelatory to their own understanding of the worlds needs.
