About Impact Society:
Impact Society helps students “discover their strengths, make good choices, and build strong character.” It works in the area of youth development with programs centred on “strength-based” development. The programs are mainly delivered to students in the Calgary area as a part of their health curriculum.
HEROES®, a 12-hour program, is the charity’s flagship program which is delivered by the charity’s staff, trained volunteers and school teachers. The program’s core curriculum covers basic life concepts that are considered to improve planning and decision-making skills, increase self-esteem, prevent at-risk behaviour by building resistance skills, and other characteristics that contribute to resilience in youth. Several local corporations and prominent members from the Calgary area support Impact with fundraising and program delivery.
Based upon the HEROES® program, Impact has developed the HEROES 2 program and is reportedly developing the HEROES 3 program which is intended for older youth. Its About Face assemblies program is a four-hour intervention program geared toward at-risk youth, delivered in partnership with Calgary Police Service.
The charity received several awards, including Alberta's Promise Red Wagon for investing in the lives of children. Founder and CEO, Jack Toth, was presented with the Queen's Jubilee Award from Canada's Governor General.
Impact’s administrative costs were 10% of revenues and fundraising costs were 41% of donations in 2011. Its reserves cover 41% of annualized program costs. Figures for 2011 are from a 6 month period.
