Create Positive Change For Yourself and Your Community

Are you 16 to 29? Then take part in meaningful volunteer service opportunities, learn new career skills and leadership abilities that inspire you to get involved and make a difference in your community.


The Empowerment Project (TEP), funded by Canada Service Corps, offers youth (ages 16 to 29) the opportunity to volunteer, get involved and create positive change for themselves and their community. Build new skills and leadership abilities. Meet and collaborate with peers. Develop activities to support at-risk youth where you live. You’ll have the chance to participate in skills-based workshops, receive comprehensive training, build your network and mentor youth in your community. TEP provides an enriching volunteer opportunity and valuable community service hours that contribute to personal growth, professional development and success.
