Mentoring Juniors Kids Organization

MJKO is a charitable organization that promotes positive and healthy lifestyle choices through mentoring and leadership training. Our dream at MJKO is to create Community Champions by using the sport of non-contact boxing to get kids moving, thinking about healthy food choices, believing in impossible dreams and understanding the importance of volunteerism.

Moreover, MJKO has taught them the importance of contributing to the success of others in our community. Miranda Kamal, inspires students to remember that Community Success, is Their Success’

Testimonials: Susan Yun

“MJKO has created an opportunity for our students to engage in a new physical sport that spans across cultural barriers and grades. Their message of ‘working hard’, ‘perseverance’ and developing leadership skills is very strong. They instilled hope where none previously existed. Through the confidence they developed with MJKO, our students hold their heads high in the country they now call ‘home’ ”.

Testimonials: Annika

“Boxing is my life. It’s the only thing in my life that brings a true smile on my face. I joined this program so I can learn more about boxing so when I’m older I can do it for a living. Also, when someone needs help I will know First Aid and CPR to save them. …I will not give up.”

Testimonials: Phillip

“In discussion with my officers who actually work with the children, I was advised that there has been a real improvement in their discipline and demeanor. This program allowed the officers to appear “human‐like” in the eyes of the participants and some wonderful relationships have been established. ”

IMPORTANT NOTICE

 

 

December 13, 2017

 

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

 

We have some important news to share that will affect your child attending MJKO programs.

 

The building that MJKO leases space from is unfortunately being demolished for the development of an apartment building.  We will therefore have to unexpectedly move.

 

This move will result in an interruption of our regular schedule programs for a short time.

 

We have secured a new temporary location in Parkdale at 186 Cowan Ave, Basement.

This space is much bigger than the current MJKO space and could turn out to be great.

 

We will start programs at the new location effective February 1, 2018.

 

Below you will find a summary of our gym hours for the next couple of weeks.

 

Friday, December 15 - Last day of Girl’s Only

Saturday, December 16 - Last day of Junior Coaches Program and MJKO HOLIDAY PARTY (if you would like send some treats with your child to share at the party that would be nice)

December 18-21, 2017 - 3PM-7PM

December 22 – January 1 - Closed for packing

January 2 – 5 - Open from 12PM – 2PM

Saturday, January 6, 2018 – CLOSED  

 

Regular hours will resume on January 82018.

 

January 21 – 27 2018 will be our moving week.

All GYM programs will be cancelled that week. School programs will run during the move: Parkdale Public School, Ryerson & DVMA Public School and Queen Victoria Public School.

 

We look forward to providing you a new schedule for the month of February 2018 once we are settled in our new space.

 

Yours truly,
