We collaborate with a network of 700 grassroots organizations across Canada to equip disadvantaged youth with the tools and drive to ignite change in their communities through the arts.

Our Vision
We share a vision of a Canada in which all youth use their creativity to tackle social issues and build vibrant communities. And we strive for a Canada where the power of the arts and artists to transform lives and communities is embraced everywhere.

Our Values
Our values reflect our unique approach to engaging with youth and the communities with which we collaborate. They include: active citizenship, innovation and creativity, inclusion, dialogue and collaboration, individual and collective social responsibility.
