Kintore College is a private, non-profit student residence. The building was funded and built by Promotion of Education and Values (PEV), a non-profit organization that aims to help women in all levels of society.
Other educational initiatives such as WEEKdays and SMILES program are also funded by the same non-profit organization.
If you would like to make a contribution to PEV to support any of their initiatives above, please contact us or click here to set up a one-time or monthly contribution.
Thank you for your generosity!
Kintore College shares its building with some non-profit initiatives serving the Toronto area. Here we feature some of the amazing volunteer and work opportunities open to university students and the residents of Kintore College.
Women Encouraging Excellence in Kids offers an after-school tutorial program on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the school year which runs through Kintore. This is a free, one-on-on tutoring program aimed to assist high school girls. High school students are paired with university students based on the subject areas that the student requests assistance in.
WEEKdays is continually seeking more volunteers to tutor high school students in math, English, and science.
If you are interested in volunteering or applying, contact the WEEKdays coordinator.

The SMILES Program is an initiative that aims to help disabled children learn essential skills that will enable them to live on their own and/or to gain employment.
The high school students who participate in this program, together with their Special Education teachers, come to Kintore once a week to practice some of these essential life skills: preparing a snack, cleaning floors, doing small repairs, organizing paper, etc. They usually practice in the basement area near the large conference room and do not interfere with the residents upstairs.
Two community outreach efforts we currently partake in include visits to the residents of the Rekai Long-Term Care Facility & volunteer sandwich-making/distribution with the Miller Group at St. Basil's Parish.
These efforts provide us the opportunity to engage with the local community and share our time and talents with those who could benefit from them the most.
