ME to WE’s Leadership Programs are based on a transformative process we call our ‘Theory of Change.’ Developed over the last decade of working with young people, our Theory of Change:
- Encourages young people to explore social issues they are passionate about
- Equips students with transferable skills to build confidence and inspire their peers
- Empowers students to commit to making a meaningful impact both locally and globally
Research Shows that our Programs Have a Lasting Impact
Each year, our versatile leadership facilitators work with over 40,000 youth and over 20 school boards/divisions across Canada and the United States. ME to WE is passionate about fully understanding the impacts that our programming has on young people.
