The Sandwich Teen Action Group is committed to providing programs for positive life experiences in a safe and caring environment, which enable youth to find support, cope with problems, and make responsible life choices. The Sandwich Teen Action Group was founded in 1991 by two police officers who set out to establish a place for area girls identified as at-risk for unplanned pregnancies. Two members of the Windsor Police force, Mike Mackenzie and Dave Doidge, asked Labour Leader, Red Wilson, to provide the funds necessary to renovate a vacant school (St. Edwards Catholic School which had been vacant for 7 years) in Sandwich towne. Their dream was to prepare the building for the newly founded Sandwich Teen Action Group.
