to build this powerful
climate action movement
Climate action led by the communities most affected by this global crisis is often underfunded and even ignored. Providing ongoing support for local leaders who understand the challenges facing their communities, including youth as part of the primary strategy, is an investment in our collective future.
We need your support to ensure
we can collaboratively launch YCC
more broadly across Canada.
We have seen the tremendous benefits that Youth Climate Corps brings to communities and youth. We want to see young people across Canada working to tackle the climate crisis and helping communities adapt.

How, together, we support local youth leaders taking on
the most urgent challenge of our time
WE GET THE WORK DONE TODAY
By becoming involved in projects across the country, rolling up their sleeves and getting their hands dirty in their communities, youth climate leaders inspire their fellow Canadians to make meaningful changes and demand more comprehensive political action on the climate crisis we face.
By working on retrofitting homes for energy efficiency, helping relocalize forms of regenerative agriculture, and enhancing the health and safety of our fire threatened forests, young people build capacities that lead to further engagement and agency.
Youth Climate Corps provides a new vision of active youth engagement and a road map that offers meaningful solutions to the crisis that young people face and impacts us all.
By connecting communities, youth employment, and skills building with the project work needed to lower emissions and increase resilience, young people build the leadership capacities that Canada urgently needs.
Join the youth-led movement for climate solutions today
We believe that the climate crisis is an opportunity for the next generation to build up their communities and create a more equitable, sustainable, and prosperous future. We must empower youth with the training, mentorship, and meaningful work they need to make this vision a reality.
We want to equip young people across Canada to help their communities tackle the climate crisis.
Help us get there by joining the movement!
