Right To Play's Youth To Youth program
Our Impact Why We Exist
Our Story What We Do
Right To Play is a global organization, using the transformative power of play to educate and empower children and youth
Through playing sports and games, we teach children essential life skills that will help them overcome the effects of poverty, conflict and disease so that they can create better futures and drive lasting social change in their communities and beyond. Founded in 2000 by four-time Olympic gold medalist and social entrepreneur Johann Olav Koss, our programs are facilitated by more than 16,400 local volunteer Coaches and more than 600 international staff.
Our Programs How We Do It
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Right To Play partners with the Toronto District School Board's Model Schools For Inner Cities to provide inner-city schools with programs that are play-based and youth-led.
Through a combination of training workshops and capacity building opportunities, Right To Play and TDSB staff support Youth Leaders to create a healthier, happier and safer school environment. Youth Leaders work to plan and lead play-based activities for other children in their school and local community.
The games and activities can be led in the classroom, in the gym or out on the school yard, and are designed to promote the key areas of learning that have been identified by the school. The Youth To Youth program looks different at every school because Youth Leaders are able to create programs that reflect the needs of their school and community.
