Mission Statement

summer camp

The Go Green Cricket and Sports Field is a not-for-profit organization.Our goal is to create an inclusive and welcoming environmentally sustainable multisport, cricket and recreational facility that stimulates Newcomer and at-risk youth to be active, healthy and engaged. Nestled beside the rich East Don River watershed with our bioswale, and demonstration wetland system and multisport facilities, we offer various organized free sports, recreational and ecological programs to our participants. Our youth leadership and volunteer training programs are designed to ensure our coaches and staff create good quality programs and become exemplary youth mentors and environmental stewards who contribute to their community and the City of Toronto at large.

Our Goals

  • To bring the beauty of the Don River back up onto the tableland by diverting storm water to create a bio-swale and wetland near our sports field.
  • To extend a welcoming bridge to mostly Newcomer and South Asian families.
  • To keep at-risk youth active, healthy and engaged by introducing various sports and free recreational and ecological programming.
  • To protect youth aged 7–18 years old from harm and/or victimization by providing safe and supervised programs and activities outside of school hours
  • To provide counseling; life skills, leadership and employment training; and volunteer and part-time employment opportunities.
