Our Impact

Many children and youth in Canada struggle with societal barriers and face adversities in their lives.

Facing prolonged adversity creates toxic stress in the brain that can negatively impact development.

With the support of a mentor, these risks can be reduced or even avoided, and youth can reach their full potential.

Every $1 invested in our programming returns between $18-$23 to society through taxes, higher incomes, volunteerism, and charitable donations.
