What’s your educational approach to impacting young people?

One of the key things we've learned over the years is that reaching young people requires a lot more than simply loading them up with content and statistics. How we engage is just as important as what we say. So, we’ve crafted our approach to be story-based, humorous, and highly relevant to the world of young people. In other words, and to be a bit cheeky, we share the important stuff that parents and teachers are saying, but just do it in a funnier and more relatable and engaging way.

Are your programs backed by science and research?

Yes, all of our programs and curriculum are backed by science and research. When we create educational material, we do so in collaboration with researchers, educators, and counselling professionals. For data and statistics, we use data provided for by peer-reviewed journals and primarily national agencies such as the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Statistics Canada, PEW Research, and the Canadian Centre for Substance Use and Addiction.
