What we do
The next generation is entitled to a world that is honestly better than ours, and it is our responsibility to make that possible. Impact Toolbox is an education Social Enterprise that is based in Canada and Nigeria. We promote interest in International development and cultural exchange among youths attending Universities in North America; we also devote our resources to empowering young people in developing countries, especially Africa.
We operate a social change idea incubation program that provides comprehensive training, collaboration opportunities, and prototyping funds to young social change leaders in developing countries, especially sub-Saharan Africa. The program helps to transform their social change ideas into viable social ventures. We connect impact investors and funders to viable social ventures with high growth potentials. We virtually connect young leaders from sub-Saharan Africa and North America. They share similar aspirations for global social change in a way that their unique expertise and experiences only serve as a foundation to build strong relationships that go on to achieve these desired changes together.
We provide cultural exchanges, international exposure, idea incubation and workforce preparation training for careers in international development to college and university students in the United States. We offer networking opportunities and coaching on venture creation and workforce preparation to young and new African immigrants in Canada to foster easy settlement and integration into the new society.
Our mission is to promote education advancement by providing youths with opportunities to learn, connect, and access resources to transform their ideas and passion for social change into viable social ventures and build successful careers in the development sector.
We directly engage with social change leaders to transfer valuable human, material and intellectual resources for aspiring and budding social changemakers through conferences, boot camps, and workshops. We have created an effective curriculum that encapsulates our experience and expertise. Our program aims to enhance the success rate of youth-led social ventures and employment in the development sector.
Since 2018, we have successfully trained over a thousand social entrepreneurs through onsite learning boot camps, idea incubation programs, and strategy retreats. In total, our program alumni have raised over a million dollars for their organizations and continue to transform their communities’ socio-economic landscapes. Our resolve to create a network that situates learning within an easily accessible adaptable environment and the need to reach youth with this much-needed intervention rapidly informed our decision in 2020 to migrate our core programs to an exclusively virtual environment. This has allowed us to entertain a more diverse group of social entrepreneurs and engage change agents from different spheres. We have since then successfully enrolled over five (500) learners from 14 countries and helped more than thirty-five (35) social ventures launch or grow in impact.
