CONC gave me a sense of community and support to achieve my education goals. The staffs were are always more than happy to assist me with my homework as English is not my first language and provided bus tokens for me to go school. With their support I graduated from college in August 2015 with a diploma in Project Administration and will now be pursuing a higher education at the University of Toronto.

Transitional Housing

The Nook Program is a great asset for our children and those of the neighbouring schools. They facilitate both tutoring and mentoring for the children that participate by having great program leaders. The Nook Program also enhances our school and community relationships. They act as a resource, as well, for our staff, our parent communities and other community groups.

We at St. Raymond are very appreciative of this collaboration with the Nook Program. We have seen that this team effort fosters and promotes an active and meaningful role to the concept of school-community partnerships.

I have no words to say thank you for Nook. You are amazing! Since when I arrive in Canada NOOK is being Kaique’s second family.
