Our Vision

Working together towards an empowered poverty-free world.

Our Mission

HOA exists to eradicate barriers to success by strengthening education, employment, and entrepreneurship opportunities.

Empowering Underserved Youth in Canada and around the World

We are committed to building the Next Generation of Leaders in Canada and around the world. We equip youth with marketable and transferrable knowledge and skills they don’t typically learn in school to help them identify and seize existing opportunities, create their own new opportunities, or take advantage of opportunities offered by HOA, such as leadership positions on our Board of Directors, Board Committees, internships, or paid leadership positions. We also use referrals and recommendations to other organizations as ways to empower youth. We firmly believe that education, employment, and entrepreneurship are key to the success of youth, tomorrow’s leaders.
