Extra Ed is a social enterprise with two main goals.

On the one hand, we aim to deliver educational programs that teach essential life skills and that positively impact those who take them. On the other, we are devoted to making a difference environmentally.

Extra Ed’s programs run mostly in elementary, middle, and high schools across the GTA and surrounding school districts, including York and Peel. We also, however, operate in community centers, libraries, private settings, and much more. Our programs are appropriate for all ages, including adults.

We focus on teaching what we consider to be essential life skills, or, at the very least, the building blocks for them. While we believe that the technical materials covered in our programs alone go a long way toward achieving this objective, we take it a step further by connecting those materials directly to people’s lives, to their values, and to the world around them.

When it comes to the environment, Extra Ed believes that we are in the midst of a crisis. And while climate change might grab most of the headlines, sadly, this crisis extends to species extinction, pollution of air and water, unsustainable consumption and waste, and on and on.

We know that a small organization like ours cannot fix everything, but we are also committed to doing whatever we can. We are also committed to the ideal that small actions can have big impacts. Being a positive force environmentally is a core part of Extra Ed’s values, and we have chosen an approach that begins with us, and extends to taking as many other concrete, pro-active steps as we are capable of. Please take a look at what we are up to!
