A few years ago Akeam Francis, unsure of what his next move in life was to going to be, came to CFN. He enrolled in one of our youth programs - Youth Quest. He completed the program and not long after made a decision; he wanted to to make a lot of Calgarians smile, just by giving a hand.
He started a Facebook page offering to help strangers. In exchange, he asks for donations for his vehicle and food. Soon enough he and his friends began getting many calls for help and soon referred to themselves as the "Smile Gang."
Whether it's Youth Quest, or current programs like Real Me or Youth Possibilities, CFN has consistently offered quality and impactful youth programs to the young people of our city. For more info give us a call!
