Core kids Hamilton


The Wever CORE is focusing the efforts and passion of the community on creating a CORE program-based environment in the neighbourhood. By bringing partners, community members, children, youth and families together, we can strive to improve our neighbourhood and equip young people with the tools to succeed and the hope of a bright future.

What we want for our participants is the same thing everyone wants for their own children: to be safe and healthy, graduate high school and go onto post-secondary education, find a career that they love and give back to their community. WE R CORE!

We want to Restore PLAY!

The impact of COVID-19 on the access to youth sports and physical activity is unprecedented. Children & youth from high needs communities who often rely on school physical education and after school programming for active play, social interaction, and positive experiences are facing some of the most challenging implications. We want to RESTORE PLAY!

Children gain valuable life skills that can improve their quality of life and their future prospects. By participating in sports and organized activities, they improve their performance skills while learning to cooperate and function as team members. This develops social skills and improves interpersonal management. It also builds their self-esteem, confidence and contributes to a positive self-image.

Leadership skills developed through many of the WEVER CORE programs have allowed several past participants to return as employees of the program, sharing their experience and expertise, earning money and gaining valuable work experience. The ability to offer participants employment is an outcome that was never anticipated yet it is possibly the greatest indicator of success in terms of developing pro-social, leadership skills in the youth of this community.
