About Us

“A compassion that can stand in awe at what the poor have to carry rather than stand in judgment at how they carry it.”
-Fr. Greg Boyle​

Our Story

Adventure4Change is a registered Canadian charity organization that addresses issues related to poverty and inequity for children, youth, and families. We use an asset-based approach to development and encourage all of our efforts to be directed by local leadership and community residents. We believe that change comes about as individuals and communities are enabled to take greater responsibility. Our success is measured by how we prepare and equip people to live lives characterized by vitality and contribution.

The Team

Individuals and relationships form the core of the human experience, and we are fortunate to have an amazing team here at Adventure 4 Change. Programs, activities, strategies, models, and organizations play an important role.

However, at the end of the day, it is always about individual people and the quality of our relationships. University students, volunteers, parents, partnering agencies, many community friends…this is our outstanding team.


Every child and youth living a life of opportunity, hope, vitality and contribution.


Our stakeholders are individuals who engage with A4C through our programs, events, and volunteer opportunities. This includes participants, leaders, volunteers, community partners, and local organizations who support a preventative and community led approach to the well-being of the communities. 


Adventure4Change and Better Beginnings project are supported by 25 years of research and evaluation. The documentation and records of our activities highlight the importance and effectiveness of practical involvement, enabling relationships and inspiring mentorship in building community and changing lives.
