Yolanda Ding

Scarborough, ON

My name is Yolanda Ding and I am a community leader in Scarborough, Ontario. I am passionate about education and empowering young students in their learning journey. I also enjoy working on building inclusivity in my neighbourhoods, especially by raising social awareness for those with developmental disabilities.

Sweet Spring Cares

My project, Sweet Spring Cares, is a care package program that provides resources to elementary-school students and their families in lower-income communities in Scarborough. These packages include stationary items, empowering prompts/activities, and more. The intention is to motivate students through their learning journey with fun and hand-made designs, as well as provide some financial support to parents by reducing education-related costs of school supplies.

  • At risk youth & children
