Inspiring and enabling young
leaders to shape a better future.

Mission

We are dreamers. We dream of a future where:
...leaders are driven by the passion to serve. 
...people trust the character and competence of their leaders. 
... and real issues are being addressed.

Our mission is to contribute to making this dream a reality by inspiring and enabling young leaders to shape a better future. Youth are full of energy, creativity, and potential and we want to help fast track their development to be our leaders of the future.

Values

Service

Leadership equals service. Remember that leadership is not a right but rather comes with the responsibility of serving others.

Social Intelligence

Your words and actions can have an impact on those you lead. Be conscious of others and your own feelings and motives in taking action.

Courage

Stand for truth, justice and fairness no matter how difficult it may seem. Hold on to your values and have the courage to make the hard decisions.

Higher Standards

Strive to do your absolute best in every situation and always ask: how can this be done better?

Drive

Take the initiative to act, explore, and try new things. Don’t wait for permission from others, if you see an opportunity to make a difference, do it.

Humility

A humble leader who accepts feedback and recognizes others will earn their team's respect and trust.

The Youth Council is a group of 9 youth who are representative of the youth we serve. These youth are currently enrolled in our program and come from diverse backgrounds and experiences. They conduct quarterly internal evaluations to ensure the program is meaningfully addressing the needs of our youth and is delivered in the most impactful way possible.

Our funding partner

We are extremely grateful to Islamic Relief Canada (IRC) for believing in our work and committing to helping us make it happen. We appreciate all the support the IRC team provides us: from funding our program to help make it free for our youth, to volunteering during the events and sharing their expertise. We are excited to have a partner who believes in our mission and vision for the community as much as we do and look forward to continuing this partnership.
