ABOUT THE HAMILTON CHAPTER

 

ProAction’s Hamilton Chapter works with the Hamilton Police Service to fund programs, benefiting local youth and police. Our partnership began in 2008, using the Toronto and Durham Region Chapter structures for its foundation, and has been steadily growing ever since. We have expanded to funding almost 10 programs per year, totaling approximately $21,000 in grants each year. The Hamilton Chapter has been steadily growing since its inception and continues to maintain and expand a strong and dedicated Council and police officer partnership.

Hamilton Featured Program

Throughout the school year, Constable David Hamilton assisted teachers at Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School with a weekly afterschool badminton program. Every Monday, up to 40 kids would come out to play recreational badminton in a non-competitive format.

The program gave these kids the opportunity to learn a fun new sport under the guidance of a police officer and develop a positive peer network. To celebrate the kids’ success and commitment to the program, a final event was planned where participants played open badminton with peers, teachers and police officers teaming up in different ways as they rotated on four different courts. This approach to play ensured that all participants were fully engaged throughout the event. A pizza dinner was also provided to keep the celebration alive.

As the event progressed, students were sharing stories, laughing and having an all-around good time with the officers which is the foundation for building positive relationships between youth and police.
