The TD Noteworthy program gives children and youth, across Canada, who face financial, social and/or ethnic barriers access to music. Thanks to the generosity of TD, Kids Up Front has been able to provide 8,000 children from 500 social service agencies across Canada with a musical experience that would not normally be available to them.
Access to music has many positive benefits for children and youth. It helps them to establish relationships between music and education that will inspire, challenge and entertain. This program gives participants the potential to reach future performers and ignite creativity that can lead kids to a life-long connection to music.
Thank you to TD for funding this valuable program.
"The kids feel: 'I do fit here, I’m part of society, I’m part of community.' They have something to talk about with peers when they come back from the weekend. It’s about normalizing things for kids."– Agency Representative
