We Can Change the World Day (WCCTWD) is a youth-led grassroots community initiative based in Richmond Hill, ON. WCCTWD engages our fellow youth in volunteerism, leadership, and social action through year-round activities. We gather and put our hearts and souls into serious fundraising to support Free the Children: WE Villages.
A key feature of our initiative is the biennial “We Can Change the World Day,” catered to an audience of over 600 people. This event features local and international artists and performers. The event celebrates our youth’s global citizenship, and kick-starts a new year of “changing the world,” starting by inspiring local changemaking. Our youth engagement efforts have been recognized by the Canadian House of Commons as of February 2015.
