Since 1998, the ComKids program has worked with the Toronto District and Toronto Catholic District School Boards, as well as the Toronto Police Service, to uniquely leverage the power of technology for social good. In 2015, the Program was able to expand outside of the City of Toronto through a new partnership formed with the RCMP Foundation.

Providing brand new laptops and Internet access is a large part of enabling youth to reach their potential. The support of educators and police officers through monthly Lead and Learn sessions provides students with guidance and mentorship that establishes healthy relationships with authority figures and encourages them to positively impact their communities.

To date, over 7,000 students have been impacted through involvement in the ComKids program.
