Your support has helped empower so many youth through the arts while also giving us the power to create the safe spaces necessary to share our human rights stories
Our iAM program inspires youth to see their own artistic talents
Here is just some of the impact since 2015
In 2015, we worked with at-risk youth who identified as homeless. Since then, five no longer live on the streets and several remain involved in our programming.
The iAM project grew from six participants in 2015 to 25 in 2016, reaching more marginalized individuals in our community.
Our rotating galleries have been attended by more than 5,000 people , earning over $8,000 in photo sales with 100% of the profits going directly to the youth participants and their families.
Our project grew from six artist mentors in 2015 to 19 mentors in 2016, creating more opportunities for local artists and providing them with the skills to empower others.
Several participants from 2015 have returned as artist mentors in 2016, creating leadership opportunities for our next generation of talented artists!
The iAM project has been featured on numerous media platforms including VICE, CBC, CTV, The Toronto Star, Globe & Mail, Canadian Press, Metro (front page), Huffington Post, and more.
