the academy

Our flagship initiative is a post-high school, pre-university program that aims to identify, develop, and connect the transformative and socially-conscious changemakers of tomorrow.

Our approach

Our curriculum develops leadership skills through hands-on, community-based projects, while helping students develop the essential dispositions, skills, habits and values that support long-term health and wellness.
