(WINDSOR, ON) – A pledge of support from the Windsor Endowment for the Arts will extend Changing the Odds: Community Transformation through the Arts for a further three years of helping local youth experience discovery, risk, play, friendship, community and above all great fun.

The University of Windsor will recognize the generosity of the Windsor Endowment for the Arts with a donor appreciation reception today to be followed by a sneak peak performance by the youth participants in the Changing the Odds program.

WEA launched Changing the Odds in 2013 as a pilot partnership with the UWindsor School of Dramatic Art. It started as a six-week summer arts experience encouraging self-discovery and promoting self-development.

It has grown to include a year-round mentorship program supported by students and faculty, providing education in financial literacy and ongoing cultural opportunities in the community and at the University.

Thursday’s event begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Jackman Dramatic Art Centre, University of Windsor.
