Project Morry

Who We Are

Meet Our Young People

Our young people are the reason we are here, and they inspire us to continue. We first meet our participants when they are in grade 4 and many continue to be part of Project Morry long after they graduate high school, as volunteers and staff. Their personal growth over this time is remarkable, and we encourage our alumni to share their stories.
