‘Sky’s the Limit’ Aims to Open Eyes of Toronto at-risk Youth

By Julia Taylor / November 17, 2009

Clayton Elliott aims to improve the lives of at-risk Toronto youth with a bold project that looks to provide sky-diving, scuba diving and white water rafting to kids that ordinarily would never be able to afford such important outdoor experiences.

Elliott has entered the project in the Aviva Community Fund Competition, which is offering up to $500,000 to worthy community projects that are the most popular among voting Canadians.

The goal of the project is described on the Aviva website as getting “at-risk youth excited, passionate and curious about discovering what exists for them outside of their neighborhood…However, this project is not just about providing a free experience or career opportunity to youths…it is to empower youth to believe in themselves…ignite a new found passion and make them aware of the possibilities beyond their world in the hopes they will go back to their communities to inspire and motivate others to do the same.
