Whereas school lays the foundation for a child’s future function, Montreal Community Cares Foundation (MCCF) offers those having difficulty finding their way a companion space to belong, engage and succeed.

Our Mission

Because the next generation holds the key to Montreal’s future, Montreal Community Cares Foundation aims to empower youth by developing their leadership skills through programs, workshops and events, and by building bridges between communities.

Who we help

Since our founding in 2012, we’ve helped more than 625 youth adopt behaviour that favours confidence, discipline and social responsibility. In fact, programs like Red Rush Basketball Leadership, MTL Goal and Life Coaching for Teens teach participants emotional intelligence, teamwork and community service.

MCCF also helps families. Montreal Community Cares & Shares celebrates the holiday season with a festive family dinner featuring singing, dancing, storytelling and gift giving. Through our seven years of toy drives, we’ve gifted over 9,750 toys at 35 local schools and community centres.

MCCF’s youth-centered approach promotes youth well-being, welcomes youth input and nurtures youth determination and resilience.

We partner with organizations that advocate for youth and Montreal’s many communities.

Over the past 14 years, we've
touched the lives of over 1000 kids.
