About Us

The True North Youth Foundation (TNYF) delivers enriching educational, sports-based, and character-building programming that addresses key physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs. The foundation’s three core programs, the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Academy (WJHA), Camp Manitou, and Project 11, empower underserved youth in our community to achieve their potential through consistent health, wellness, sports, and educational programming that integrates into students’ curriculum from kindergarten through Grade 12. As well as providing tools and resources, the TNYF creates a community where students are supported and encouraged in their growth and development.

Through TNYF programs, meaningful opportunities to belong, learn and contribute set students on a positive path to continue to grow their skills, confidence, and citizenship. Whether through the academic support of the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Academy, the adventure of outdoor education at Camp Manitou or the wellness curriculum of Project 11, the True North Youth Foundation impacts over 65,000 youth annually.
