We are a charitable organization that purposely works with others to help create a world where young people are valued and heard and their ideas for improving themselves, the lives of their peers and communities are put into action.
Sharing the Stories
A research and evaluation platform for youth, organizations and governments. The platform amplifies the voices of young people by aggregating data across multiple youth programs. Key youth trends from the aggregated data are published and shared with youth, organizations and decision-makers. Check out the research that's emerged from the platform and our Centre of Excellence for Youth Engagement.

Be The Program
"Be The Program" offers youth across Canada the opportunity to prevent dating-violence through customized programs designed for their peer groups. Youth leaders will identify the needs of their peers in an evidence-based participatory research process, supported by adult allies from organizations across Canada, co-create programming, and deliver the programs in their communities. This approach ensures that young people are not only learning about violence prevention, but they are also learning leadership, facilitation, research, and design skills.
Through a historical lens, the purpose is to engage youth from across Canada in sessions that provide them with an opportunity to interact with their peers about social issues that impact them directly. These issues include but are not limited to: multiculturalism, social and economic inclusion, and diversity.
This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.
