About Veronica Vernon

(Executive Director)



Veronica Vernon, affectionately known around her community as Sister V, is a local legend in Ajax because of her hard work for the youth and her dedication to stopping violence in the community. Through her non-profit organizations, VV’s Adult Support Centre Corp. and Victory Neighbourhood Services Inc., she is able teach many life skills to both the adult and the youth. Her organizations have spawned several community events such as summer camps that are filled with excursions, learning and fun. Other events include a free annual Christmas dinner and crime prevention fundraising concert for the youths in the Durham region featuring many government officials and motivational speakers.

 

Sister V’s main objective is to remove youth from the streets and keep them in a positive environment. In return the youth in her program and on the streets highly respect her and look up to her as a mentor, a friend and a surrogate mother.

 

A love and a passion for the youth is what drives the companies, VV’s Adult Support Centre Corp. and Victory Neighbourhood Services Inc. We believe that as a community we have an obligation to influence, encourage and empower our youth of today in order to make a difference for tomorrow.

Victory Neighbourhood Services Inc. is a not-for-profit charity organization that focuses on teaching, mentoring and support for the children and youth in the community. All the youth and children programs and events were operated under VV's Adult Support Centre, however in 2008 it became a seperate entity to focus more attention towards the youth and children in the community. As a community leading organization Victory Neighbourhood Services has held programs and events such as the Summer Day Camp and Free Christmas Dinner, just to name a few. Since 2004, these programs and events have been very successful and reputable, gaining the attention of notable dignitaries such as MPP Joe Dickson. The organization is ran by Veronica Vernon alongside a board of directors as listed below. Together, they are able to formulate, organize and create these events. Victory Neighbourhood Services is dedicated to helping the youth and children and will continue to do so to provide a positive influence for them to succeed and strive for the top.

A Word From Sister V.

My name is Veronica Vernon, I live in Ajax, Ontario. I am happily married for 28 years and have 3 children and 1 grand daughter.

 

I am the president of a non-profit organization called VV’s Adult Support Centre Corp. My desire is to help the elderly who cannot be left at home alone so they come to the daycare in the day and go home to be with their family in the evening.

 

Since 2004 I have been operating a summer day camp called Victory Summer Day Camp. It runs during the months of July and August.

 

In September of 2006 I started an after school program. Upon noticing the academic struggle with students in my community. On January 27, 2007 a Youth Program was also launched.

Through these programs I feel as though I have been able to get my message across to the community as well as lending a helping hand to all those in need.

 

I also organize a free Christmas dinner since 2006 for the youth in the community. In the past I held crime prevention events with the youth in Durham Region. At these events the government officials, the business managers and community leaders get together to discuss how we can prevent crime in our community and to send a message to impact the youth on a “no need for violence attitude”.

 

I have a love and a passion for helping people in need and especially the children and youth. I believe that as a community leader I have an obligation to influence, encourage and empower our youth of today in order to make a difference for tomorrow.
