Trailblazers

Trailblazers is the only program in Canada supporting children and youth with a facial difference and their families. By creating a fun, safe, and inclusive environment, Trailblazers is a place to build life-long friendships with people who share similar life experiences. Trailblazers helps children and youth connect through activities, grow, and learn in different ways to maintain strong mental and social health.

Virtual Programs

Held monthly, our Virtual Programs allow the facial difference community across Canada to come together over Zoom and participate in fun games, arts and crafts, and more! Our virtual programs are about an hour in length with activities ranging from science experiments to virtual escape rooms to trivia to…the sky’s the limit! 

These programs are FREE and open to children and youth with a facial difference ages 6-15 and their families. Families are responsible for providing their own materials. With this in mind, we make them as material friendly as possible and only keep to common household items (such as markers and paper).
