Programs

At Kids Up Front we believe that all kids should have access to enriching and exciting experiences such as sporting, arts, and cultural events. With the help of our partner agencies throughout our community we are changing lives by providing access to events just like these to children and youth around Ottawa. Our programs give families a chance to be engaged, included and active which are critical to human happiness. When you support Kids Up Front you are contributing to a healthier and more inclusive community for children and youth to grow up in.

Kids Up Front is making communities stronger by allowing everyone within them to enjoy what they have to offer. Communities benefit from having engaged citizens, strengthening of community values, and inspiring future leaders.

Thank you so much for offering us the tickets to have this wonderful experience of Canadian Music Show.

It was so fun and so interesting for us as an immigrant family. We felt well connected with local culture and felt the passion that performers showed. Really amazing experience!

Leila, Ticket Recipient

We came from Mexico 3 years ago and we have never been to a Senators game before. For my kids it was a BIG surprise and joy. We were able to spend family time and have fun. We felt belonging to the Ottawa crowd and were proud to see the Senators won the match.

Nery, Mom and Ticket Recipient

It was quite a joy to bring these young people to their first game. I will never forget it but to watch the happiness they all got to experience last night - it was one of the best moments of my life! We all appreciate what Kids Up Front is doing and hope to have future opportunities.
