Mission: To mentor young people in the pursuit of their artistic and aspirational passions in an inclusive community.
Vision: Every young person confidently pursues a future rich with opportunity.
UforChange began in the heart of St. James Town, a Toronto neighbourhood thriving with young people from around the world. The founders identified a void in the area, the community was lacking an arts organization in the diverse neighbourhood.
From there, UforChange was created offering young people the opportunity to pursue their creative passions with a spectrum of arts programs from DJ to fashion to film. Initially serving young people of St. James Town, UforChange has grown to serving Regent Park and the Greater Toronto Area.
