BOLT Charitable Foundation

BOLT was launched by Tridel in 2009 and was established as a charitable foundation on January 1st, 2013. It started as a simple concept – to provide awareness and learning opportunities for youth associated with The Children’s Aid Society of Toronto to the field of construction. By establishing additional community, government and industry partnerships, BOLT has since expanded to reach an even broader range of youth.

Through various fundraising events supported by our industry and trade partners, and through Tridel’s internal fundraising initiatives, BOLT has provided over 400 scholarships for postsecondary education and training for deserving youth interested in pursuing a career in construction.

In September 2014, BOLT provides the framework to assist youth in embarking on a career in construction. BOLT goes ‘beyond the classroom,’ to help connect under-resourced youth to meaningful and rewarding employment in the industry.
