WHO WE ARE

 

Our Mission

 

The Horner Foundation is a family-based charity dedicated to partnering with community-based organizations that provide youth, aged 10-19, hands-on experiential learning opportunities through Out of School Time (OST) to foster positive youth development.

 

We work in 4 geographic regions, determined by where family members live, their specific interests and needs identified by the community.

Our Vision

 

  • All youth will be empowered to realize their full potential and become active participants in their communities.

  • All youth will have ample opportunities both inside and outside the classroom to experience a diversity of quality learning styles and frameworks.

  • All youth will be healthy, strong, and well-prepared for the 21st Century.
