INTRODUCING FUTURE ACE STORIES

Some of our programs take youth that have never been outside of Toronto and move them into the wilderness to explore the wilder world. But Aaron Guthrie, a teacher in Thunder Bay and a Future Aces Leader, does the reverse. He brings his students, who come from Treaty 3 and Treaty 9 reserves, to the Big City.

In both cases, we’re creating opportunities for youth across Ontario to broaden their horizons, to meet other children of every race, creed, and religion, to inspire them to set loftier goals, and to have an unforgettably fun experience while doing so.

Our Founder, Herb Carnegie

A world-class professional hockey player, Carnegie was prevented from ever playing in the NHL because of his black skin. After being forced to give up his dream, Carnegie became a successful businessman and philanthropist, starting a hockey school called Future Aces. In 1987, Carnegie created the Future Aces Foundation to “inspire and assist youth an adults to become the best they can be as responsible, respectful, peaceful, confident, and caring citizens.” Carnegie was named to the Order of Ontario in 1996 and the Order of Canada in 2003.
