Cricket Across the Pond Scholarships

Cricket Across the Pond (CAP) is a community initiative led by the Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation in partnership with CIMA Canada and a lead financial sponsorship from the Royal Bank of Canada. CAP is designed to provide opportunities to youth from diverse neighbourhoods and develop social cohesion and interaction among young people through cricket. CAP uses cricket as a vehicle to reach out to youth by giving them a sense of hope, increased self-esteem and opportunities to become positive role models in our communities.

CAP aims to develop these young Toronto ambassadors as youth role models in our communities.
