Helping Young People in Our Community
- GECDSB International Students Program makes donations-

Through the support of Ingle Insurance, our health insurance provider for International Students, the Greater Essex County District School Board will make 2 separate donations to organizations that work on behalf of young people in our community.

On Wednesday, December 19th at 9:00 a.m. at Kennedy Collegiate Institute (245 Tecumseh Rd. E.) we will present a check for $1,800 to the United Way On Track to Success Program. On Track to Success offers support to help students graduate from high school and go on to post-secondary education.

At 11:00 a.m. Wednesday morning the GECDSB will present $1,800 to the Windsor Residence for Young Men at their location, 1505 Langlois Ave. The WRYM supports young men (ages 16-24) as they leave homelessness behind to build new lives.

The GECDSB is able to makes these donations through funds received from Ingle Insurance, which provides a percentage of the premiums received back to the Board to encourage community investment.
