How Much?

It’s Free for all TDSB high school students. The number of participants is limited for the program, therefore, registration runs on a first come first serve basis. Registration is required for enrolment.

A theory and our believes behind S.H.A.R.P.

We believed that a sense of belonging would allow youths to enjoy school life, be a helpful member of a family and get more involved in the community.

These activities and involvement would in turn encourage a youth to be aware of individual differences, live with hope, appreciate cultural differences, be resilient, develop networking skills and to grow up as a healthy adult with good characters.
