The KFL would like to expand programming to all of the high needs schools in the Ottawa area, a feat that will require a great amount of financial support and time commitment from volunteers. The organization would like to improve its current structure to make it more easily accessible to schools and volunteers and to help grow a resource base for the programs to expand. Increasing program availability will provide more youth, especially those who are financially disadvantaged, opportunities to engage in an active lifestyle, improve motor skills, increase self-confidence, and develop a social support network.
Goals and Objectives
The goal of the KFL is to provide local, quality, affordable programming to youth, focusing on improving fitness, motor skills, and character development in a fun, safe, and educational environment. Financial constraints should never serve as an obstacle to physical activity and, through the formation of partnerships with parents, schools, and other like-minded associations, barriers to accessibility may be reduced.
