Amazon is committed to ensuring children and young adults in the communities where we operate have the resources and skills they need to build their best futures.
The day at Lord Roberts Elementary kicked off with enthusiasm and joy as students gathered for a nutritious breakfast, setting the stage for an eventful morning. The young minds delved into an engaging STEM activity, led by Canada Learning Code and supported by volunteers from Amazon’s Vancouver Tech Hub.
Amazon Canada, Breakfast Club of Canada, and Canada Learning Code share a commitment to nurturing students’ development. Through the Amazon Future Engineer (AFE) program, Amazon aims to increase access to computer science education for children and young adults from underserved and underrepresented communities.
Canada Learning Code's interactive learning activities after breakfast not only sparked creativity and fun but also encouraged problem-solving skills, igniting a passion for innovation among the students.
"Our collaboration with Breakfast Club of Canada and Canada Learning Code reflects our dedication to empowering youth through education," stated Cynthia Caglar, Head of Amazon Future Engineer Canada. "We strive to ensure that more students have access to both a nutritious breakfast and educational opportunities, laying the groundwork for a brighter future."
Natalie Charrette, Director, Major Gifts & Planned Giving Philanthropy at Breakfast Club of Canada, emphasized, "Our mission is to provide all children with equal access to balanced, healthy and varied food to support their academic success. This partnership with Amazon allows us to expand our reach, ensuring that more students have the chance to start their day with a nutritious breakfast and reach their full potential."
At Amazon Canada, we remain committed to driving initiatives that empower communities and create meaningful impacts in the lives of children across the country. Through partnerships like these, we envision a world where education and nourishment pave the way for a brighter tomorrow.
