Guardians of The Children Toronto Chapter now recruiting!!!
WHO WE ARE – We serve as a public benefit organization. Our VISION is to improve the quality of life in our community and to recognize and take responsible action regarding the REALITY of child abuse. Guardians of the Children Canada (GOC) is a Community of like-minded motorcycle enthusiasts who are dedicated to protecting the victims of child abuse. While volunteering our time, we partner up with Children Advocacy Agencies, Victim Assistance Groups, and other child-related organizations to raise awareness of the prevalence of child abuse in our neighboring communities.
OUR MISSION – The mission of Guardians of the Children Canada is to empower and protect abused children, to remain passionate about keeping children safe, and to raise awareness by educating communities to give these Courageous ‘Lil’ Warriors a voice that is heard.
ACCOLADES – Guardians of The Children Toronto have been awarded the Most Dedicated Child Protection Agency in Ontario Award by LUXlife Parent & Baby Awards 2020.
Respect The Patch- It’s Earned – All of our Members have passed Child Abuse Awareness Training and have cleared Police record checks. We take our commitment very seriously and strive to become a force to stop the cycle of abuse. After all, isn’t that what the children deserve?
WHAT DOES A GUARDIAN DO? We support the children. There are times when a child or family reaches out in a crisis. We assess their needs and make arrangements to properly address the issues. This could be as simple as taking the child for a ride for ice cream or contacting the appropriate authorities for an immediate reaction. Either way… WHEN A CHILD CALLS, WE RIDE! We maintain an ongoing relationship with the child and their family. Children are unaware of the stigma around the biker persona and accept us as their friend, their rock. They rely on us and get their strength knowing that we have their back no matter what. We actively participate in their lives, attending Birthdays, Graduations, and other key milestones. We will do what it takes to make them feel safe and empowered in their own environments. We support the families of the victims of abuse by attending court sessions and tracking the judicial process of the accused. The families, and also the public at large, deserve to know what is happening to the perpetrators at all times. We have allegiances within the system that understand our cause and recognize the need for what we do. We couldn’t do any of it without funding. We have some wonderful sponsors and we also host our own fundraising events. Our Annual Empower the Children Motorcycle Ride is an all-day event filled with music, food, games, draws and, of course, a poker run styled ride sure to be enjoyed by experienced riders and novices alike. All Members and Supporters are needed to ensure a successful and safe day for all participants. Perhaps the most important role of a Guardian of the Children is to bring awareness and education to the public regarding child sexual abuse in Canada. The legal system shows undue leniency in crimes against children and we need the public’s help to let our Leaders know that the current policy is unacceptable. We also need to teach our children that what they have experienced is not acceptable or normal. If we can do this, the cycle of abuse can be broken.
We are also Supporters. We have been very fortunate to have gained the recognition and respect of many motorcycle groups throughout the GTA. Although we would love to attend every event and ride that we can, the children’s needs come first, always. Attending these events returns the respect and aids in our networking efforts and allows us the opportunity to voice our mission in a widespread biker community. When you wear the Patch, You are a Guardian of the Children. DON’T LET YOUR SILENCE DROWN OUT THEIR CRIES.
