Motivate Canada is a Canadian charitable organization that specializes in improving the lives of young people by fostering civic engagement, social entrepreneurship, social inclusion and leadership among youth. We use techniques from sport, physical education and community driven development in our programming.
Through harnessing the power of positive role models, sport and physical activity, and community engagement principles, Motivate Canada is able to engage young people, build their confidence and sense of self-worth and increase their social and vocational competence.
From our modest beginnings 20 years ago as a one program, one province organization, we now deliver four youth-driven development initiative across Canada - ACTIVATE, the ESTEEM Team, the Clean Air Champions and GEN7. Each program targets youth between the ages of 9 and 25.
