There are other agencies and programs that focus on character development. Impact Society programs are different because they focus on celebrating every individual’s, or student's, existing strengths, not their weaknesses or problems. With this strengths-based focus, we offer youth and their support networks the framework and vocabulary to have the important conversations and develop a key understanding that will create a safe, supportive community of learners.
Any individual, school, company, organization or family can license our suite of program offerings, which can be taken and contextualized to your environment to create a culture of strength. The annual license package includes: downloadable interactive program materials, access to online training videos, additional program content resources and membership into an online community of others in pursuit of the same vision.

HEROES® is a simple but effective twelve-session character education experience that helps youth see what’s already inside them – greatness. We don't focus on changing behaviour or teaching certain skills. We know (and evidence shows) that positive behavior follows a positive self-concept. That’s why we focus on every student’s unique gifts and abilities. The HEROES® program easily fits into school curriculum taught by teachers, educators and community volunteers.
Built as a follow up to HEROES®, H2 is the next step a young person can take in developing and practicing his or her gifts and abilities. Over the course of 11 sessions, students are challenged to put HEROES® into practice – focusing on what role they play, by using their gifts and abilities, in making a significant impact on the world around them.
HEROES® AT HOME is an interactive workshop that guides leaders and caregivers to build a foundation of confidence, character and integrity in both themselves and children or youth in their care. Studies show that with these foundational skills, youth are better able to recognize, appreciate and use their strengths in positive ways.
LEGENDS is a strength-based, adult leadership program designed to grow all levels of leadership within corporations, First Nations' communities, educational organizations, agencies and more. This interactive workshop is typically delivered over 2 - 3 days and is customized to meet the needs of the organization in which they are hosted.
EVERYDAY HEROES® is a new video collection with an accompanying discussion guide to awaken the hero in you. Through thought-provoking topics that spark internal dialogue, this video series and discussion guide can be utilized in a group setting or independently, leading to a strengths-focused approach for your group, school or self.
What does it mean to be a strengths-focused teacher or leader? Jack Toth, CEO & Founder of Impact Society, shares his experience and insight in his best-selling, fictional book. Toth provides a look into his personal and dramatic experiences with teaching processes that develop more confident students who are better prepared to learn. The Teacher Every Student Wants and Needs is intended to inspire a positive culture in Canadian schools with a stronger emphasis on relational, student-centred teaching.
Impact Society is committed to equipping schools and staff in strengths-focused practice in order to create the nurturing environment needed to cultivate proper youth development. We offer professional development training and workshops for both schools and companies designed and tailored to a specific need.Professional Development Pack
Everyone possesses his or her own unique talents and it is important to know what talents you possess, and what you bring to the table when you operate at your optimum. Do you know what your strengths are?
At Impact Society we know that everyone has strengths; we help people, especially young people, see their strengths. (That one thing is everything.) A tool we use to help people know and understand their talents is the Clifton StrengthsFinder® inventory. This inventory is the culmination of more than 50 years of Dr. Donald Clifton’s lifelong work and is a powerful online assessment that helps individuals identify, understand, and maximize their strengths. Gallup, the research & analytics organization, tells us that, “people spend too much time focusing on their weaknesses and miss out on utilizing what they do best”. We believe that you will operate at your best when you know, understand and develop your strengths because it’s what you already do best. To book your own StrengthsFinder Tour, contact us today.
