About Us

Our Story

Entrepreneurship & Technology for Youth (ETY) delivers a project at the idea or conceptual stage over 36 months (2017-20) to provide digital literacy, and entrepreneurial education, resources and supports for low-income, racialized youth in Toronto. Youth learn to harness the power of business and technology through a space where they feel accepted, share their ideas and work collaboratively. Our work is based in the east end of Toronto in the Crescent Town (Taylor-Massey) community. We work with underprivileged but ambitious youth from across the city of Toronto. The project pilot is made possible by the generous funding and support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation - Youth Opportunities Fund. Our organizational mentor is the Bangladeshi-Canadian Community Services.

We are drawing near to the end of our three project pilot phase. Given our fantastic successes during the pilot phase, we are looking to sharpen and scale our core offerings in 2020 and beyond. We hope to achieve this through expanding our team as well as a greater number of partnerships and collaborations. We believe that a lot more underprivileged young people can benefit from the innovative work we do.
