Field Of Dreams

To play is to learn! Baseball diamonds and other sport facilities are classrooms for the children and youth of Canada. Kids should be proud of the places where they play, learn life skills and participate in an important step in their socialization. Field Of Dreams is Jays Care's granting program for infrastructure dedicated to youth life-skill development and physical activity. The Field Of Dreams program provides funding to design, refurbish and build safe spaces for children and youth to play baseball, develop life skills and learn from positive role models.
