"If a program such as Dream Brokers would have existed when I was younger my single mom would have been able to sustain mine and my brother's participation in hockey. As it was, only one of us was able to keep playing. Your program is much needed in our community."

What is Dream Broker all about? . . .
The Dream Broker connects you and your family with a sport, recreational or cultural activity. She can support participation in various sport, culture or recreation activities by helping with registration costs, transportation, equipment or just by being a cheerleader on the sidelines when a family member is unable to attend.
If your child is interested in any sport, culture or recreation activity outside of school please let Antje know and she can guide you to make it happen!
Antje works at St. Mary’s School
on Mondays & Wednesdays.

“In group I learned some inspirational things and bullying stuff and self-esteem stuff. My favourite part of the group was that I got closer with some other peers.”
“I’m being nicer and I’m not being a bully. I’m being more helpful.”
“In group I learned to care. My favourite part of the group was helping other girls in the group.”
“This really helped me out by showing me ways to cope with things and to understand things. This helped through a lot of my problems and situations.”
