Growth is not enough.

Every year, we’ve had the honour to be able to report on the significant expansion of our reach across Canada. Fiscal 2019 was no exception. Each of our programs grew by more than 30%. We reached over 170,000 young people in person, and our message reached over 30 million people online and in the media.

But at, growth means more than just increasing numbers. It means making an important impact. It means educating a generation, and changing knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours. It also means always searching for ways to innovate and hold ourselves accountable to rigorous standards in order to create unprecedented change. 

This will take growth of the staff team and our network of young leaders. It will take bold choices, great governance, effective strategy, excellent execution, and a lot of hard work. With your support we're ready for it. Our 2,800 brilliant and passionate young leaders are backed by over 12,000 individual donors, hundreds of volunteers and allies, plus dozens of foundation and corporate supporters. We’re makers and builders and doers. is not your average charity. And we're proud of it.

With all my love,
