Square Circle is a non-profit organization that strives to provide education, empowerment, and a secure haven for children and youth in underserved communities. Please provide your support today!
Our programs are based on the principles of Social Circus, aiming to enhance communication, interpersonal, artistic, and physical skills of young people in a collaborative, safe, and enjoyable environment. We employ pioneering methods to educate and instill self-assurance in individuals. By adopting an arts-based approach to education, our programs cultivate teamwork, creativity and play without any competitive or judgmental environment.
Founded in 2013 by Clarence Ford, Square Circle teaches Social Circus and other creative arts to empower youth to become directors of their own lives. We focus on youth from the age of 9 to 14 in the Greater Toronto Area. Our programs develop communication, interpersonal, artistic, and physical skills in a safe, collaborative and fun environment.
