About Us

Wordswell is a Canadian non-profit organization created in 2007 by a group of youth and young adults, who are teachers, doctors, engineers and community workers, concerned about their younger peers who were transitioning a crucial stage of life in a time when society is experiencing rapid and significant change.   Wordswell offers programs primarily for young people, to train and support them as builders of their communities and agents of positive social change. Its programs and approaches seek to assist youth to develop capabilities for both individual and community development.

Its programs are offered at the neighbourhood level and enable youth to develop their powers of expression – with a focus on critical reasoning, literacy, comprehension and eloquent speech – in order to participate more effectively in the planning, decision-making and development of their communities.
To build and sustain truly prosperous communities in a time of rapid global change certainly depends to a great extent on the effectiveness of the preparations the youth make for the world they will inherit.  All our programs are offered with the conviction that youth represent a vast reservoir of energy that can be directed toward the advancement of civilization.  When encouraged and properly guided they grow up to be among the most valuable human resources in a community.
