Levelling the playing field
Our mission at Elephant Thoughts is to support and create quality educational experiences and opportunities for children and youth facing barriers.
educational outreach and opportunities
Elephant Thoughts is dedicated to reduce poverty, facilitating equality and creating opportunities, for children and youth facing barriers, through educational outreach and opportunities. It is our mission to bridge barriers with opportunities for skill development, improving self confidence, and enriching experiences. Barriers can be economic, mental, physical, geographic, or access based. We want to provide life-changing opportunities for children and youth by equipping them with the skills they need to build fulfilling careers and prepare for the future.
our core values underpin every program and offering we serve our community with.
Skills Training & Internships
Providing youth with opportunities to learn and apply practical skills is central to our mandate. Internships in culinary arts, carpentry, fine arts ( glass blowing, pottery), media arts and more are currently offered in various formats to suit the needs of the communities we serve.
Elephant Thoughts supports schools and teachers across Canada in content, teaching, special program delivery, and supporting graduation rates in communities that have historically faced barriers.
Youth centres and remote maker spaces are a fantastic way to create opportunities in remote or economically challenged communities. In our centres we provide access to cutting edge technology and innovative, fun, engaging programming for children and youth.
