The Wild Gift experience gave me the supportive boost I needed to branch out and explore my passion in helping sustainability groups advocate for change. It is the combination of the awesome mountainous trek with inspiring people followed by the months of mentoring that makes this project so worthwhile for young environmental leaders. Thank you Wild Gift for this opportunity.
Impacts of My Work: 
Funding from Wild Gift provided me with the support I needed to co-found Tools for Change. A project of OPIRG Toronto, Earthroots, and Greenpeace Canada, Tools for Change organizes workshops to provide skills people need to champion social change.
Since 2010, Tools for Change has hosted 18 workshops a year.
Approximately 22 people attend each Tools for Change workshop.
When asked if participants would recommend a workshop to a friend, 98% of respondents have said “yes”.
