About the Identify ‘N’ Impact Investment Program

Since its creation in 2006 the Identify’N’Impact (INI) Investment program has funded youth-led groups to deliver meaningful opportunities for youth to be involved in their community. INI funded projects help to promote healthy youth development and community safety in the City of Toronto.


Funding is used to support youth to lead and deliver projects that will engage other youth. By supporting youth-led groups, the INI program helps create opportunities for youth to develop skills and get the resources they need to be successful.  Up to $10,000 is available for each project for one year, and its expected about 18 – 20 projects will be funded in 2013.


To be funded, projects must  show that youth are the leaders in the planning, management and delivery of the project. Funding priority is given to groups and projects that involve youth from and/or based in one of the City’s 13 neighbourhood improvement areas; and/or work with racialized youth, particularly African-Canadian youth
