The PACT Urban Peace Program is a Canadian charity that is helping empower at-risk youth through unique activities. Instead of merely trying to keep kids busy, the program helps youth connect with industry professionals to learn valuable skills and enjoy unforgettable experiences.
The PACT team consists of project leaders and industry professionals from the local community who are willing to provide support and mentorship to at-risk youth. This mentorship is offered in the form of hands-on classes in subjects ranging from fashion to online entrepreneurship. Through these classes, youth learn fundamental skills that can help them pursue further studies in their area of interest or even start their own small business.
The educational initiative not only equips at-risk youth with the kinds of skills that will assist them in pursuing their future career goals, but it also helps them connect with the community by working with local business.
