Graduation students throw their hats in the air

Our Mission

Our goal is to help break cycles of poverty by encouraging vulnerable youth to stay in school and complete their high school education. We work to encourage and recognize outstanding young people from across the Lower Mainland who reach the milestone of graduation despite overwhelming adversity.

Celebrating our 2023 Cinderella Project Grads

Referrals for 2023 grads are currently closed. Referrals will be open again on January 3rd, 2023 and will close for the year shortly before our spring event.

We will be holding a Graduation Celebration Event in the spring of 2023.

To learn more about our referral process, please visit the Refer a Student page.

Further, members of our Class of 2023 will be eligible to apply for one of our Achievement Awards, which are based on dreams, not grades.  To date, we are proud to have awarded over $183,000 financial awards, 50 laptops and 35 hair-dressing scholarships. We continue to support students with financial assistance for their application/registration fees for post-secondary education.

We support students in Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, West Vancouver, North Vancouver, and Sea to Sky (Squamish, Whistler, Pemberton)
