St. Catharines, Ontario – Tomorrow’s Voices, a barrier-free children’s choir, has been awarded 2023’s Niagara Impact Award for in the Non-Profit category, presented on Wednesday, April 12 by Chair Jim Bradley at 2023’s State of the Niagara Region.
The Niagara Impact Awards are given annually to recognize community members who have made a positive impact on life in Niagara. Tomorrow’s Voices was chosen as this year’s recipient for their dedication and commitment to create a space for children to explore music, build relationships, and raise their voices together in song.
“We are thrilled to receive the Niagara Impact Award this year as a testament to the hard work and dedication of our board of directors, music directors, volunteers, and supporters,” said Todd Green, Executive Director of Tomorrow’s Voices. “This award inspires us to continue our work and make an even greater impact for kids in Niagara, across the province, and nationally.”
Tomorrow’s Voices provides free after-school choir programs to kids ages 8-18, with chapters in St. Catharines, Hamilton, Toronto, and Saskatoon. Since 2017, Tomorrow’s Voices has welcomed over 150 children into their choirs across Canada, of all backgrounds and abilities. It has been a privilege to watch these amazing children learn, grow, and teach each other about friendship, kindness, acceptance, and love.
The choirs have given children the opportunity to perform at sporting events, sing with award-winning artists, and find the perfect place to let go of the emotions that are difficult to express and simply be themselves. Tomorrow’s Voices is more than just a kids’ choir — it is a community-building, social development program.
Tomorrow’s Voices is made possible thanks to the generosity of their community, through individual and corporate sponsorships, as well as granting. 100% of all donations go directly to fund their unique programming.
