Media Release – August 12, 2014 – Paul Hansell Foundation Fund Announces a Five-Year Commitment to Support Music Lessons for Youth. 

BURLINGTON, ON: The theme of this year’s International Youth Day (August 12) is Mental Health Matters. In honor of this, the Paul Hansell Foundation Fund is proud to announce a five-year commitment to the Reach Out for Center for Kids (ROCK) Burlington and the Paul Hansell Hand Up Fund to support music lessons for youth. 

The Paul Hansell Foundation Fund is driven to influence and promotes programs aimed at supporting the mental and emotional wellbeing of youth. It was founded in memory of Paul Hansell, a graduate of Assumption Catholic Secondary School and first-year student at Brock University who took his own life in December 2010. Paul had many musical talents and this program recognizes the many benefits of music in terms of self-confidence, self-esteem and expression.
