About the Program

Tomorrow’s EDGE Youth Engagement Program was begun with the goal of creating opportunities for youth and young professionals to act with compassion, confidence and courage to better their communities locally and globally. A Better World focuses on training and internship programs, support to attend conferences, field studies and research (including traveling with A Better World) and the guidance necessary to launch their own humanitarian projects.

The ACT Humanitarian Conference, held on the campus of Burman University in May 2018, brought high school and university students from public and private schools across Canada. The goal was to equip them with the tools necessary to make a better world, locally and globally. The conference was organized and directed by fourteen university students as part of the EDGE program. At the end of the conference, the students were asked to gather and share their vision for the future of Tomorrow’s EDGE. One main vision was to give them work experience to help them gain employment upon graduation. A Better World has been able to give work experience to numerous youth in the areas of accounting, marketing, web design, proposal preparation and databases. Young professionals who have just graduated also benefit from these work experiences and have added professional value to the work of A Better World. Because they have just finished school, they often do not have the financial resources to support humanitarian work or travel to humanitarian projects. Subsidized travel helps them to gain valuable international experience.
