In 1994, Jack and Collette Toth founded Impact Society in Calgary, AB. Their mission: to passionately work with youth to discover their strengths, make good choices and build strong character. For 15 years, the grassroots organization continued working locally with community volunteers to deliver programs. In 2009, Impact Society’s story transformed into a national one, partnering with TransCanada Corporation to drive a HEREOS® Across Canada expansion.
Impact Society has impacted over 150,000 youth through HEROES® and other programs made available in schools, community agencies, local police services and other partnerships across Canada. Impact Society has been awarded the Alberta’s Promise Red Wagon for investing in the lives of children.
Young people deal with big issues and make choices that will affect their futures. We build a network of strengths-focused communities around youth. Through our programs, we help youth recognize and build on their strengths and equip them to make the right decisions, so that they can lead purposeful lives.
