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. 



  1. Empower Opportunity Youth’s Involvement in Sport

  2. Create & Support Educational Opportunities for Opportunity Youth Through Scholarships

  3. Host Events to Raise Awareness & Funds to Support Key Foundation Pillars

  4. Fundraise to Assist in Developing a Sports Complex for Opportunity Youth; Project Marshal
