“The leadership of CACD in making substantive differences in the lives of “at-risk” youth in Brampton, Mississauga, the City of Toronto and in Jamaica has been truly remarkable! Ron Cunningham and his CACD team provide innovative, dynamic programming that encourages “at-risk” young people to make positive life choices and become responsible and contributing citizens to society thereby making our communities safer for all.”

“CACD is truly a very special group of people and the work that you have taken on is truly an admirable task. We hope that even in some small way, that we can play a role in helping CACD raise funds and of course, create exposure for your cause”.

I think that the CACD program was very beneficial. We learned many different ways to be a better leader and to better our lives.
The CACD leadership program was helpful to me and a lot of students. It helped us to be positive and believe in ourselves. We can become anything we want, as long as we set our minds to it.
The leadership program helped me a lot and taught me a lot as well. It taught me very valuable life lessons that will take me a very long way. It also taught me that you can achieve anything in this world, as long as you believe in your self. Through this program I met the real inner me.
This program helped me realize the positive things I can get out of life. With everything that I have learned, I know that I will be using these lessons in the long run.
The CACD leadership program provided our Alt. Ed. students an opportunity to learn valuable skills that complemented the leadership program that we are completing as a class. The students built a trusting rapport with the workshop facilitator. We feel fortunate that CACD provided our students with such a worthwhile experience. We hope to continue to use their services with future classes.
