Who Are We

Across U-hub is a charitable community organization in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). We aim to build up young lives by inspiring individuals and motivating collective goals and actions. We dig deeper to identify the root causes of youth issues and we work together with community partners to generate a sustainable development model that positively impact the health and well-being of young people that leads to more lively families and communities.

Across U-hub provides a nurturing environment for youth’s all-round development, aiming to foster social and emotional, cultural, physical and spiritual growth. It is our vision to cultivate a generation of socially responsible local and global citizens as well as visionary leaders through building up their:

  • Confidence and Positive Self-concept
  • Communication Skills
  • Creative and Critical Thinking
  • Community Consciousness and Involvement
  • Compassionate Citizenship and Servant Leadership

Across U-hub provides a “Youth-Led” leadership development model to nurture over 170 volunteers each year through its authentic experiential leadership-training platform.

The platform available for learning and implementation are:

Across U-hub also emphasizes equity of access to our services for all youth regardless of family background. Therefore, most of our programs are either at nominal fees or free of charge. Where necessary, fees will either be further reduced or waived confidentially for individuals with financial need.
