At Preston Apartments, we know how important it is to stay involved and engaged within the communities we provide homes in. We recognize that, along with our dedication in providing prestigious homes in Toronto, there are needs that go beyond a resident's apartment. In an effort to ensure we contribute to the quality of the communities that Preston Apartments are located in, we are excited to feature a number of local organizations we contribute to, in our effort to uphold the standard of excellence in our neighbourhoods.
The Go Green Youth Centre (GGYC) is a non-profit sport and recreational facility offering families in Toronto's Flemingdon & Thorncliffe Park neighbourhoods free and affordable youth programming. GGYC began as a community-driven initiative to revitalize the Valley Park Middle School's backyard and adjacent Hydro land. They have since built an inclusive and environmentally sustainable multi-sport field there, featuring an outdoor amphitheater, night-time LED sports lights, an urban forest and more. Programming includes year-round multi-sport programs and camps which have served and engaged thousands of youth in the community. These programs are meant to stimulate the youth to be active, healthy and engaged as they grow into members and leaders of the community. GGYC's mission is to assist disadvantaged youth, particularly children of recent immigrants, to overcome social exclusion through their facility and programming. Their initiatives allow a safe space for newcomers and youth to make new friends, build support networks, foster leadership opportunities, develop employment skills, and more. Preston Group is proud to support a local organization that puts the youth and community at the forefront of its mission.
