Woodbine Social Media Accounts to Promote Work with At-Risk Youth


Woodbine | Michael Burns

The charitable organization Trust 15 will be taking over Woodbine Entertainment's Twitter and Facebook accounts Wednesday to bring awareness, engagement and action to the work it does supporting at-risk youth  in the Rexdale community. Throughout the day, the organization will share interviews with several of the youth who are enrolled in the program, infographics to educate the public on the work it does, and information on how people can get involved.

“Given what's happening in society with inequality, we've committed ourselves to continuously look for opportunities to help eradicate systemic racism in our communities,” said Woodbine Entertainment CEO Jim Lawson. “Trust 15 primarily serves at-risk, black youth in the community who are often exposed to racism. If we can make more people aware of the impactful work that Trust 15 does, we can help them grow the program and have a greater positive impact on even more youth in the community.”
