Celebrating Indigenous youth through sport
“We can use sport with intention to give children reasons to do what they naturally do: smile, laugh, and remind us of the beauty of the human experience.”
At Rogers, we are committed to making a meaningful impact in partnership with Indigenous communities and our Indigenous team members on the collective journey towards truth and reconciliation. A part of this commitment is helping to empower the next generation of Indigenous youth through sport.
At a Jays game in the spring during Indigenous History Month, we invited youth from Six Nations of the Grand River and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nations to enjoy a VIP experience at the Rogers Centre.
In collaboration with Sportsnet writer, host & inclusive content lead Donnovan Bennett – Rogers team member Kevin Young (Retail Sales & Residential Services), who is a part of the Rogers Indigenous Peoples Network, recaps this important day. This video essay reminds us all of the importance of equipping youth with experiences, opportunities and resources to help unleash their full potential.
Through investing in our networks to connect Indigenous communities, creating safe spaces for employees, growing our culture of inclusion, and empowering the next generation of Indigenous youth through scholarships and grants, Rogers is committed to making a meaningful impact on our collective journey towards truth and reconciliation in partnership with Indigenous communities.
