WE Charity is an international charity and educational partner that operates collaborative programs both domestically and internationally. WE has been working in Canadian schools for over 23 years and is one of North America’s largest youth-serving organizations, reaching 3.8 million youth in 16,000 schools across North America and the UK.
WE Well-Being is an in-school program that trains educators to integrate positive mental health activities into the classroom. This program uses a proactive approach built on evidence-based prevention and promotion strategies, designed to build a foundation of awareness, understanding and taking action.
AMDF has directed support to the Well-Being program because it addresses youth mental health through a preventative lens and reduces the stigma surrounding these challenges. AMDF’s funds have helped to bring the Well-Being program to 20 schools across the GTA during the 2019-2020 academic year.
“The Aubrey and Marla Dan Foundation's support has been instrumental in scaling WE Well-being in the Greater Toronto Area, helping us to achieve an even greater impact on youth and educator well-being.”
