Community and Taurus Projects!
We wouldn’t be here today without the support of our community in Fort Saskatchewan and Edmonton. We’ve made it a corporate goal to support the development of this amazing community and make sure that the kids and families of it get the support they need to grow up happy, healthy, and successful. Our primary activities lie in youth sports, as we believe that it teaches young people a great work ethic, a healthy competitive drive, and the social skills to be a happy and strong member of the community.
The benefits of youth sports are numerous, as you can see from this article.
One of the community initiatives we have focused our time and funds on is the Fort Saskatchewan Minor Hockey girl’s Atom team Fury. Taurus supports the team financially by helping with tournament costs, meals, hoodies, jackets, and more. If we can take some of the financial burden away from these children, they can focus on becoming successful members of society!
In Edmonton, we offer an athletic scholarship program through the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. The program is available to student athletes enrolled in the Bachelor of Business Administration, Business Administration, Civil Engineering Technology or Electrical Engineering Technology program at NAIT. The award is based on the acceptance into the program and acceptance onto a NAIT intercollegiate team. A NAIT coaching staff selects 2 recipients every fall to receive a $2500.00 scholarship. The scholarship allows the students to focus on being better athletes, better members of the community, and promotes their success!
We have also been very supportive of great causes like the ALS Society of Alberta and the Alberta Children’s Hospital “Oilympics”!
But that’s not all we have done for the community! Here’s a full list of our activities HERE.
