Matthew Reid, Senior Program Coordinator

Matthew ReidEvery young person should have a place like Frontlines to go to. A place were they feel loved and accepted. In a time were its hard for children to be children, Frontlines provides a nurturing environment were they can learn grow and have fun. I understand that the children of Weston Road will grow up and become the adults of Weston Road. Frontlines provides the environment for children to grow up and become contributing members of their community.

As a graduate from the Toronto Film School, I am able to bring my creative touch with program development. I am looking forward refining, and developing programs to better serve the community.
