About UforChange Movement:

UforChange provides arts and life skills training to new to Canada and low-income youth between ages of 16 and 29; living in and around St. James Town and Regent Park. The program has now expanded to include youth from Brampton, Mississauga, Jane & Finch and Scarborough. It provides support and resources to pursue higher education, volunteering, job shadowing and employment opportunities. UforChange also connects youth with professionals, artists and community leaders.

UforChange was developed from a pilot project within the Wellesley Insitiute. Therafter, it was registered as an independent charity in August 2012.  It offers a structured six month program of intensive arts, culture and life skills. Students accepted to the program typically exhibit a desire to improve work and/or education  opportunities. Post graduation, alumni return to UforChange as volunteers, and to access opportunities such as support enrolling into post-secondary education or participating in an internship.

Currenty, the organization offers 6 different arts programs.  It can accept up to 85 youth per year. Arts programs are taught by professional artists currently working in their fields. This young organization is working on developing stable funding sources and developing a strategic plan.
