TORONTO, Feb. 8, 2012 /CNW/ - On Monday February 6, 2012, Greenwin Inc.'s pilot project Spider's Web at "The Oaks" apartment complex in Toronto was featured on CTV.
This past June, Spider Jones and his Believe to Achieve Organization joined Greenwin Inc., TD Bank, Doorsteps Neighbourhood Services and Literature for Life to launch Spider's Web Youth Empowerment Initiative; and a community basketball court sponsored by TD Bank.
"The pilot project is part of Greenwin's whole plan for the ongoing repositioning of ˜The Oaks' complex," says Haya Zilberboim, CEO of Greenwin Inc. Headquartered at 160 Chalkfarm Drive in Toronto, a Greenwin-managed property, the program offers underserved youth in Ward 7 a safe haven where they can learn the skills necessary to overcoming adversity through boxing, computer training and mentoring. Literature for Life will provide a literacy program encouraging children to read and participate in learning.
"We want to teach them social skills, mentor them to make the right kind of choices," Spider Jones told Canada AM. "I chose a bad path," he said. "I followed it down, and ended up behind bars in prison. That's what we're trying to prevent here.
