invest in young people today for a better community tomorrow

We’re expanding our programs to set up opportunities for exponential growth and to help 14-24 year olds build life skills, resilience, and mental well-being, while navigating through highschool and preparing to transition to post-secondary. Our youth are resilient, but they need supports as they close one season of their life out for the next.

Your donations go directly to impact youth in Halton, Hamilton, and beyond (GTHA) through our mentorship and leadership development programs. In the aftermath of the pandemic, there has been a surge in the need for peer support. We are in this together, and as a community, we can reassure them that they are not alone.

Through your support, we’re empowering our community youth to make an authentic impact.

80% of our total revenue in 2023 went to supporting charitable programs and activities. DTBY put donor funds to good use and provided much-needed support to 300 + young people aged 14-24. To break it down for you: It costs DTBY $300 for every student who participates in our programs for 12 months
