Have you heard of The Empathy Factory? OUR BELIEFS

At the Empathy Factory we believe that children are innately generous, and that they have some of the most altruistic and wonderful ideas to help their friends, family, community, and the world. If there is anything that consistently slows them down from being the change, it’s that they lack certain resources. Sometimes that’s money, sometimes it’s support, and sometimes it’s even the belief in themselves.

In consideration of this, we’ve created a program where children can pursue their philanthropic ideas and never have to look back! Read on to hear how we do it:

THE PROCESS

We visit schools throughout Nova Scotia and deliver workshops on the value of volunteering, philanthropy, and related topics to children aged 8-15. We then challenge them to submit ideas that will better their communities in the categories of Health, Environment, Social Justice and/or Education.

The top one or two ideas at each school receive the full support and mentorship of the Empathy Factory staff and volunteers throughout the execution of their ideas. Upon completion of the projects, we ensure that each student involved submits a reflection of their learning outcomes, successes, and failures.
