Shania Twain Launches Kids Can Campaign

Shania Twain

Shania Twain, who is a multi Juno and Grammy award winner, came to Hjorth Elementary School in Surrey to open her latest clubhouse called Shania Kids Can.

“If I’d had this program when I was a kid, who knows where I’d be right now,” Twain laughed.

“In saying that there’s a lot of irony there, I was just one of the lucky ones. I just made it by chance. Regardless of how much talent you have, you need support.”

Shania says she lived through many tough times as a child and promised if she became successful when she grew up that she would try to give back to society.

Hjorth Elementary is the first school in British Columbia chosen to house the Shania Kids Can Club and it is the sixth program Shania has opened in North America.

The support staff at the clubhouse will offer everything from nutritious food, to life skills training to help with homework.

It is the kind of support Shania says she often needed when she was growing up in Timmins, Ontario.

“I changed schools 17 times during my childhood, for various reasons. Either we had to leave the town because we couldn’t pay the bills and we had to just move or my dad had to get a new job… for various reasons, we moved around a lot.”
