WE ARE YOUNG
Granting Unfulfilled Wishes to Seniors
We Are Young (WAY) is a charitable organization that grants unfulfilled wishes to seniors living within the Atlantic Provinces and now within Ontario as part of our Pilot Program! We grant unfulfilled wishes to seniors with the clear intention of positively changing the way society views, values and supports our oldest generation. Through granting wishes, our mission is to raise social awareness around the inequalities seniors face, encourage respect for and appreciation of seniors, and facilitate inter-generational connection where seniors experience inclusion and belonging in our communities.
Stay up to date on our most recent fundraising campaigns, events, media coverage, and wishes granted!
Francis Warner, 83
Francis Warner has always dreamed of driving in a King transport truck; a wish she always wanted but never thought would be possible, until now, thanks to King Freight Lines. "I hope my mom was watching from above", Francis said, coining this as "the best experience of her life!"
“Chase Your Dreams, whatever you want to do, and you’ll get there.”

“Alzheimer’s disease has taken a lot from my father. This experience gave something back. Thank you for that.”
“Never in my wildest dreams did I ever expect that I would go back to Amethyst Cove. I will never say I am too old.”
