WE Are Canada
This dynamic program empowers young Canadians to define their future. In a three-day workshop, your group will explore Canadian issues, build leadership skills and create an action plan to help them shape the future of Canada and the world. Youth will complete the program feeling connected to their local community and culture and inspired to build a legacy.
21st Century Leadership Skills
In a rapidly changing world, the skills and meaning of leadership have also adapted to the emerging needs and trends of society. Take your group’s leadership skills to the next level and help them become an influential citizen of the 21st century.
Safe and Caring Schools
Creating a learning environment where students feel safe is vital to achieving student success. These programs educate and empower participants to effectively combat bullying and promote a school culture of inclusivity, equity and diversity.
Indigenous Leadership and Education
Our Indigenous Leadership and Education programs can be tailored for Indigenous and non-Indigenous young people. Participants explore history and current events and examine privileges and perceptions, while engaging with Inuit, Metis and First Nations Elders and community members in the development of their leadership skills.

ME to WE’s Approach to Learning
Our Theory of Change follows three key focal points in the exploration of leadership development, social justice education and civic duty. Participants involved in any of our programs, no matter the main objective, will follow this common path:
Explore, analyze and enhance their understanding of local and global social justice issues.
Identify personal strengths, develop transferable skills in leadership, critical thinking and communication, and learn how to apply them to social change.
We provide mentorship, tools and tangible steps for participants to build detailed and realistic action plans that help connect their strengths and skills to issues.
