Liberty for Youth was founded in 2004 with the vision and motto “Giving youth the Liberty to Choose”. Starting with helping one youth in the detention centre, we have served over 700 youth. We currently mentor over 130 youth in our various programs. Youth spend as little or as much time in our programs as required, working alongside mentors and program staff. We have been privileged to see lives changed and families reconciled. We have also seen heartbreak when youth struggle to make positive choices, or unfortunately when we have lacked funding to continue our programs.
The historic Run with Frederick in 2016, a 3 - week marathon from Ottawa to Hamilton, was our most audacious effort towards sustaining programming for the youth. This journey continues every year in partnership with the Road2Hope Hamilton Marathon.
Every year we have teams of caring people raise awareness and funds to sustain vital mentorship programming for the youth we serve. So, whether you are a seasoned marathon runner, a beginner, or just looking forward to a light stroll around Confederation Park, you can join our audacious team - to never turn youth away again. There are 1 KM, 5 KM, 10 KM walk/runs on Saturday, November 2nd, 2019 and Half-Marathon and Marathon on Sunday, November 3rd, 2019.
Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.
