Our mission is connecting individuals with the community through engaging activities designed to meet the specific physical, mental and social needs of each client. JIF is committed to jumping over barriers, to build a community bridge to life fulfillment.
What we offer
The goal is to promote participation, structured living, and mental wellness through physical activity in social settings for children and adults. It is critical to focus on at-risk youth in order to provide a positive structure to keep them engaged and positively motivated. Breaking down financial barriers and providing the necessary support to engage in an active, healthy lifestyle will benefit adults who would otherwise, due to poverty and/or mental illness, be unable to reap the emotional, physical, and mental rewards of physical activity and healthy lifestyle habits. We offer three programs: a physical activation program, an after school sports program and a peer to peer youth support group.
Physical Activation Program
Jump In’s Activation Program seeks to alleviate the impeding participation barriers to physical activity for Ontarians and their families living in poverty and with mental health issues.
After School Program
It is critical to focus on at-risk youth in order to provide a positive structure to keep them engaged and positively motivated.
The purpose of the Jump in Foundation is to alleviate all participation barriers to physical activity for Ontarians living in poverty and with mental health issues.
Jump In seeks to provide financial relief and emotional and mental support, guidance, and encouragement to those who, without the Jump In Foundation, would be unable to participate in physical activity for the betterment of their health.
Our Vision and Goal
The Foundation seeks to exclusively help those individuals who are in need of the Jump In services because they are living in poverty and/or suffer from mental illness.
