ABOUT US

The Canadian Courage Project (“CCP”) was launched by two young females from the BIPOC community in May of 2020 that saw a gap in the current system both supporting homeless youth with animal companions and female youth empowerment at the secondary level. The CCP's goal is to empower young females to strive for social impact, push boundaries in the workplace, support homeless female youth, and offer services for one's animal companions. 

 

The foundation of this female-run organization is to increase the awareness of the United Nations 17 Sustainable development goals throughout workshops and offer youth tangible skills to enter the workforce with global health in mind. 

 

With a mission to support the local community within the Greater Toronto Area all care kits essential are purchased from local vendors. Supporting youth, local companies, and a mission for equity in the process. Striving to empower young women and promote feminine hygiene equity. The CCP educates women about their reproductive and sexual health and aims to end period poverty. COVID-19 has raised many barriers for women within and outside the workplace. We take measures to ensure that women are equipped with the necessary tools required to attain leadership positions and bring about positive change in their communities.

 

Additionally, our efforts extend towards racialized women, those from low-income families, and from rural areas. Our mission of inclusion reaches out to members of the LGBTQ2+ community and promotes wellness for all.

The Canadian Courage Project is partnered with YouthLink Shelter & Transition home, which works to support homeless youth in the Greater Toronto Area.
