Creating a world we want to live in
Power of Hope supports the emotional well-being of young people. Through transformational empowerment camps that use arts-based activities and foster inclusion and community, youth are uplifted and supported to express their authentic selves and connect to their potential.
Imagine an atmosphere of safety and acceptance where you can express yourself more than you ever have before. You learn that no one is without problems, and everyone has a gift. No matter what you say, what you create, what you attempt, what you’ve been through, what your deepest fears are — it’s all accepted with total love, support and guidance. This is what Power of Hope is all about.
We are a registered Canadian charity, and your support keeps our world turning. Anything you are able to give makes a difference. We issue tax receipts for all donations over $20. Make your secure online donation here:
“This program really helped me learn about myself, it’s a very welcoming and accepting community. I’m blessed to have gotten this opportunity.”Nana
“POH has been an amazing, important part of my life for the past six years. Without the support that I have received here, I’m not sure I would even be the person I am today. Through POH I have made lifelong connections and met people who have changed my life and /saved/ my life. My teenage years were difficult and POH was an amazing outlet that I wouldn’t find anywhere else in my life.”
“This camp has the power to change lives.”Evelyn
