World Vision Youth Canada - Partnerships

With corporate Canada’s help, millions of children and families have benefited from improved schools, access to clean water, better health facilities, loans and business training- including here at home. 

For more than 60 years, Canadian corporations have been choosing World Vision as their philanthropic partner to empower people in developing countries by delivering aid through self-sustaining projects.

Our partnership is vital.

Our partners’ level of involvement may vary, but every effort helps when transforming the lives of those living in extreme poverty or crisis.

Some of the Youth Team’s partners:

Legacy One

Legacy One is a non-profit organization that seeks to impact students through the urban arts.

Using artists trained in hip-hop dance, spoken word poetry, legal graffiti art, and dj’ing, we offer a variety of programs and workshops that encourage students to find their unique voice. We define voice as the element that makes students come alive and gives them hope and purpose – it is their gifts, passions, and potential. Legacy One challenges students to use their voice to influence their communities and to leave a positive legacy.

The Legacy One artists have been mentored and trained by respected dancers, spoken word and graffiti artists, and DJ’s from Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto, France, and New York – artists such as Kaze, Gemini, Sweepy, Nick Demoura, Shaun Evaristo, Johnny “J Blaze” Erasme, Jonathan “Jonboogie” Rabon, Lunacee, Lady-C, J-sik, Kid David, Luigi, Y-not, Bobby Mileage, Flexum, Propaganda, Jonny Williams, and Jeff Goring. Over the last four years, Legacy One has performed and taught in schools across British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec, New York, England, and Malta!

Live Different

“Welcome to Live Different! We are about change. We are about hope. We are about the continual dream and reality of making a positive difference in the world around us. We believe that together, we really can do it!

We all know apathy sucks. We all agree that injustice is not acceptable. We all want to do something to stop the cycle of selfishness in our lives and in our world. It is possible – but we need to know where to start. So that is why, every day, we are challenging the status quo and calling the world in which we live to wake up and Live Different.

To Live Different means to choose to answer the call to social activism, each and every day – starting with ourselves.

Live Different (formerly known as Absolute Leadership Development) was established as a Canadian charity in 2000. From the very beginning we have been passionate about making a difference in the lives of the people we encounter through our high school presentations, our humanitarian outreach programs and our leadership development opportunities. We have grown over the years, but one thing will never change: our commitment to inspiring those around us to embrace hope and change, starting with their own lives.

We believe that each of us can be a part of that change, each and every day. All it takes is us just beginning to do it! From reaching out to someone in your life, to changing how you shop, to traveling around the world with our Hero Holiday volunteer programs, each of us can be a part of something incredible. Each of us can Live Different!”

The Meeting House

The Meeting House – “Not into traditional religion? You have come to the right place. The Meeting House is a church for people who aren’t into church.

Maybe you’ve had a bad experience with organized religion, maybe you are investigating Jesus for the first time, or maybe you have moved into a new area and are looking for a community to rally around and serve our world better. Whatever your situation, we hope you will find a place here to ask questions and find what you are looking for.”
