The St. Royals will be featured at this year's POWER OF ONE fundraiser on Thursday April 24th. This is a ticketed event fundraiser.
Power of One 2014
An annual fundraiser to benefit Toronto youth who don't have the same advantages as others. All proceeds go to For Youth Initiative, a nonprofit organization that helps youth in low-income areas create successful futures.
Most of us had some help on our way to success. Perhaps it was the support of a loving parent, the guidance of a role model, or even a few bags of groceries during those tough university years. Most of us who've achieved some success had a few boosts along the way, from someone who believed in us.
What if you had no such people in your life? Many teens living in Toronto's low-income areas lack supports that are critical to building a successful future. This isn't an isolated problem. In Toronto 1 in 3 children are living in poverty, according to the City of Toronto. Planning for adulthood is hard enough as it is.
Your purchase helps provide a disadvantaged youth with the tools and skills she or he will need to have a successful future.

We help lift youth out of the cycle of poverty through leadership skill development and guidance towards community resources. We believe all young people deserve the chance to create a successful future.
