Extra Ed is a social enterprise with two main goals:
1) We aim to deliver meaningful educational programs that teach essential life skills, or, at the very least, the building blocks for them. While we believe that the technical materials covered in our programs alone go a long way toward achieving this objective, we take it a step further by connecting those materials directly to people’s lives, to their values, and to the world around them.
Extra Ed’s programs run mostly in elementary, middle, and high schools across the GTA and surrounding school districts, including York and Peel. We also, however, operate in community centers, libraries, private settings, and much more. Our programs are appropriate for all ages, including adults.
2) Extra Ed is an organization devoted to making a difference environmentally. We know that a small organization like ours cannot fix everything, but we are also committed to the ideal that small actions make a difference.
Being a positive force environmentally is a core part of Extra Ed’s values. We have chosen an approach that begins with us, and extends to taking as many other concrete, pro-active steps as we are capable of. Please take a look at what we are up to!
