In addition, we help young people improve their skills and career development through clubs such as chess, mahjong, and debate, as well as leadership programs such as the YMCA Youth Exchange Program. There are also dance, opera and other programs to support young people and their families and build support systems in the community.

Art Earth Youth Leadership Program

Nature in Toronto is about to get even more colorful. How to achieve this goal starting from teenagers? The answer was to create an Art for the Planet youth leadership program .

Like many grassroots organizations, EcoToronto relies on teen volunteers to achieve its mission: to make Toronto “Canada’s young and vibrant financial hub.” In this program, we aim to inspire the younger generation to have a love and sense of responsibility for the environment, by organizing art exhibitions, promoting and stimulating public awareness of environmental protection , which will help transform the vision of EcoToronto into the world's most colorful financial One of the centers that makes Toronto a reality.

This year and next, 15 young people from Toronto will gain climate-related expertise and ideas while developing new leadership skills while managing the Art for the Planet exhibition project. We will provide participants with professional leadership training, including improving communication skills, teamwork, problem-solving and decision-making abilities.

Teen volunteers want to contribute to making Toronto greener , become Toronto's next generation of environmentalists, and develop deep connections with a variety of local climate advocates to guide the public through youth-driven peer engagement.

The youth leadership training program will provide opportunities to put the knowledge learned into practice by organizing plant diversity workshops, Art of the Earth exhibitions and other events. Our collection of art includes sculpture, photography, wide format photography, fashion, painting, design, media and fashion design and more. We will select outstanding works for display in community centers and art exhibitions. Through the exhibition, we call on society to protect the environment, with special attention to protecting biodiversity. How to become a volunteer and join the project?
