DFO and Ontario soccer partner to offer bursaries


Dairy Farmers of Ontario (DFO) has partnered with Ontario Soccer to be a community partner and the exclusive title partner of the “MilkUP Ontario Soccer Future Leaders Program.”
Created to support the education and development of youth leaders within Ontario Soccer, the MilkUP Ontario Soccer Future Leaders Program takes a holistic approach to leadership recognition and development, with an emphasis on growth. The program is based on three pillars of celebration, recognition and development to support Ontario soccer youth leaders. 
“The MilkUp program was created to have a meaningful, measurable and enduring effect on Youth sports across the province and to drive awareness of the benefits of milk in a healthy, active lifestyle – no matter what age, says Cheryl Smith, DFO chief executive officer. “Organizations like Ontario Soccer do great work supporting local Youth and partnering with them allows us support them, too. Every dollar that goes into this program represents direct investment from a real person – a dairy farmer - and we are very proud of the support we provide to Youth activity and opportunity, where they live and work.”
