To Live in a World Where Triumph Outweighs Despair
At The Balance Foundation, we are movers, shakers and connectors who want to see the youth in our city given equal opportunity to participate in sport and education, regardless of the circumstances they were born into.
We want to build communities that value young people so that in return, young people can provide value to their communities. That means providing access to mentorship, improving mental and physical health, getting the opportunity to interact with like-minded peers, to develop a skill set and a purpose, but most importantly to have fun and to grow.
