Thank you for your steadfast support. In the face of challenging times and the heartbreaking stories that we witness here in Canada and around the world, we are deeply grateful for your generosity and trust. You inspire our team at Empowerment Squared each day to maintain our unwavering commitment to focus on our mission with passion and hope. Because of your contribution to the collective impact, thousands of lives are positively changed through our free programs such as Homework Circle, academic mentorship, sports and recreation, and professional skills and entrepreneurship.
“My family moved to Canada in 2019 from Pakistan and it was really hard. I began my journey with Empowerment Squared as a program participant. The organization supported me through my difficulties as a newcomer youth, giving me the confidence to live freely and without fear. I feel safe and confident today. Now, I volunteer to help other youth, while participating in Empowerment Squared’s leadership program. After high school, I want to study to become a doctor.”Atia, grade 11 student.
Newcomer, racialized and marginalized youth and families need your support more than ever as they continue to experience the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 and other complex issues such as poverty, cultural and language barriers, and lack of gainful employment opportunities.
In the spirit of giving this holiday season, we invite you to be part of the transformation journey by donating to our cause. Your donation is an investment in empowering youth, like Atia, families and communities with tools and skills to reach their full potential. Thank you for joining us in building a better world where everyone thrives and contributes to society.
