TREVOR WILLIAMS KIDS FOUNDATION

PUTTING MONTREAL YOUTH CENTER COURT

The Trevor Williams Kids Foundation empowers Montreal’s youth to become socially conscious members of their community through sports, education and mentoring.

Academics plus athletics equals a perfect education

A Message from Trevor Williams

I have been struggling with my emotions and my ability to put my thoughts together given the desperate times we find ourselves in. I identify with George Floyd and the race issues that are being brought to light, because at numerous points in my life, this could have been me. Starting from a very young age in downtown Montreal, I have lived countless negative experiences that were solely based on the color of my skin. This situation we are living right now, puts me in mind of a young black man killed in 1987, Anthony Griffin, who was fatally shot by a police constable in NDG. I can remember the pain, dismay and anger that the black community felt then, at yet another death of one of our own. We were outraged then, and over 30 years later, I am saddened that we are still living these horrible and unnecessary realities.

The Trevor Williams Kids Foundation will continue to empower, promote, and improve the lives of the black community as we have for the past 27 years. We will continue to create jobs, offer programs, and foster environments of diversity, where people of all colors and backgrounds come together to learn and grow through sports and activity. We understand firsthand the challenges that our community faces, and will continue to forge ahead to educate, empower and build meaningful and lifelong connections here in the province of Quebec.

We created the foundation as a means to bridge the gap between races, to build economic progress, and improve and support education for those in our community. We continue to rely on our allies for help, to lead by example, and to empower and support our youth as future leaders. We commit to develop relationships with law enforcement to improve understanding and collaboration between them and the community. This has to end now. We are at a crossroads as a society, and it will take each and every one of us to do our part, band together, and create a different future for us all. The next generation needs our commitment and effort to create a better world.
