UFORCHANGE – TRANSFORMING LIVES, FUTURES AND COMMUNITIES

Youth look for answers to questions like “What are the most important tools to be successful in the creative sector, and how can I learn to use these tools?”. They look for accessibility. They look for inclusiveness and being in a safe nurturing environment. UforChange is their answer. We stand along with them, each step of their journey. Teaching them, helping them and guiding them to be the free, skilled and bold youth they hope to become. We work to inculcate strong skills and provide access to mentorships and workshops to practice a career in Arts.

At UforChange, the arts are the vehicle towards success and personal transformation: whether a young person completes our program and goes on to become an artist or a healthcare professional, the role of the arts and a supportive community cheering them on is key to attaining success.

What started as an initiative to support the youth of St. James town, has expanded to cover initially Regent Park and now youth all across the GTA. The Core Arts programs support over 50 young people every year and another 350 youth are empowered annually through workshops and mentorships. For years, the programs at the non-profit organization have impacted young people who are in the pursuit of understanding and learning their purpose and direction in their futures. To date, we have worked with over 1500 youth who come from all parts of the Greater Toronto Area.

UforChange aims to shape the next generation of young creatives in the GTA and continue impacting young people who lack access to the arts.
