To empower youth and their families by promoting well-being through Sports, Culture and Support Groups in Vaughan and its surroundings.
A vibrant and inclusive community where Fuerza Latina Community Services is a leading provider of services for youth and their families in Vaughan.
“Helping the youth of TODAY become strong members of society TOMORROW”
The idea was born out of a desire to provide youth with constructive, alternative programs helping to direct them away from negative behaviour, and encouraging other youth to embrace a second chance.
Since 2003, the desire becomes a reality as youth from the community gather together as a group, regardless of ethnicity or culture to learn the value of teamwork, inter-personal relationships and community.
