On Saturday, April 9, we were very proud to witness our friend, Spider Jones, be knighted in recognition for his transformative work with youth at risk in our communities.

Spider's Believe to Achieve Organization is a registered non-profit that assists kids, ages 8-16, in after-school personal development and mentorship programs. The after-school drop in centre at Jane and Finch provides food programs, study groups for homework help, computer rooms, teaching guides and motivation and support with caring adults.

Congratulations, Spider, on this very well-deserved honour!
