I would like to thank you so very much for your recent efforts on my behalf. The bar that you constructed for my wheelchair has been a complete success. I realize that a simple metal bar will not change the world but it has made my wanderings in it a lot easier."

REQUESTING A PROJECT:

If you want to request a Tetra project through the “Youth in Transition” project, please use the regular Request for Assistance Form.

ABOUT:

The Tetra “Youth in Transition” project involves students at nine colleges and universities in the Greater Toronto Area and the Peel region.

Tetra clubs will work closely with engineering departments to ensure that Tetra projects for students with disabilities will be built on-site. The process will involve thousands of students attending eight separate colleges.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the GTA clubs will receive four years of nurturing. Launched early 2012, the project will run until 2016 – but the clubs will be built to last.

Day-to-day operations are being overseen by Youth in Transition project coordinator Hamed Dar, who has been working with disability services groups, seeking referrals, and engineering staff to include the design and build of Tetra projects into their curriculum.

“This is a long-term project to create self-sustaining programs. The success of this project will be measured on how sustainable it is,”said Hamed.

If you can help make the Ryerson University chapter sustainable by helping out in any way please let us know.
