Role Model

 

 

Money Raised

Boston Pizza believes that strong role models inspire kids to be great. This is why we created Future Prospects – because things start to look up when you have someone to look up to.

Research shows that those who have had a role model are more likely to*: 

Feel Confident - 92%  
Be Happy - 96%
Hold Leadership Positions - 47%
Have Post-Secondary Education - 63%
Be Employed - 17%

Through our five charity partners, we help connect kids with role models in their communities to ensure they have the guidance necessary to support their bright futures. Our four amazing not-for-profit partners Big Brothers Big Sisters, Kids Help Phone, Live Different and Rick Hansen Foundation have helped us provide positive and meaningful mentorship to children and youth right across Canada.

Every child has the ability to make a difference in the world, and at Boston Pizza we value how important positive role models and mentors are in supporting and inspiring youth to reach their dreams. Through Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects and our partnering organizations, we will work together to ensure ALL kids have the opportunity to have a positive mentor or role model to help support, guide and empower them to become all that they can be.
