Event Description

Groundswell offers alternative-to-business training for youth under 35 who want to create a social enterprise, non-profit or co-op, and need business skills and mentoring that won't compromise their ethics.

Take control of your future! Be self employed and realize your right livelihood. Join the supportive, visionary Groundswell community.

One of Groundswell’s core ideas is that people are at their best and are happiest when they have a project they are working on: a project that they are truly invested in, is genuinely important to them and their community, where their own best energies, values and skills can be realized.

Come to the next Info & Experience Session at Groundswell's cafe space in the DTES to find out more.

Applications for the next run of programs are being accepted NOW!
