Educate, Empower, Inspire.

ACCESS empowers youth social innovators and activists to create social good.

Founded in 2006, ACCESS has expanded from a group of Brampton high-school students fundraising for school uniforms for youth in developing nations to delivering local programming to thousands of students in the Greater Toronto Area. Today, ACCESS mentors other youth-led organizations, helping them to make a lasting social impact.
