6. How do the funds raised from the tournament make a difference? The Tech4Good Hockey Tournament supports Connected North, which uses high definition, live video-conferencing technology to connect K-12 students in remote Indigenous communities to experiences and opportunities, otherwise unavailable to them locally. By connecting students to mentors, to field trips, to educational experiences, and mental health and wellness sessions, we are supporting the students’ success in school and in life.
The funds raised at the tournament will be used to add more schools and programming to our network. The goal of Connected North is to ensure that children in the remote North have access to the same opportunities as children in the South.
7. How much of my money goes to the cause? One hundred percent of tournament revenue will directly support the Connected North program.
8. How will Tech4Good benefit Canada? The social challenges faced by Canada’s Indigenous communities are stark and significant, compounded by the difficulties of getting critically needed mental health and education services into Canada’s remote, far northern locations.
By overcoming the challenges of time and distance, Connected North delivers much needed education and mental health and wellness services into remote classrooms.
The Indigenous youth population in Canada is the fastest growing in the country. With programs like Connected North, working in partnership with Indigenous schools and community leaders, we are helping to strengthen resilience in these children and build their success in school and in life.
