We’d like to
introduce you
to Circles.

Circles is a peer support, positive mental health initiative that equips your students to thrive.


If you didn’t know, here’s a bit about us.

We were established as a Canadian charity in 2000 and began to operate internationally in 2005. From the beginning, we have been passionate about making a difference in people’s lives through our youth empowerment presentations, our humanitarian Builds program, our community projects, and our Academy program. Over the years, we’ve spoken to over 1.6 million students, visited over 3,800 schools from coast-to-coast, and completed over 500 projects internationally, including homes, schools, and clinics.

Live Different Programming

We engage youth with relevant programming.

We support schools and conferences with motivational presentations as well as provide meaningful, two-day programming for Indigenous communities across Canada. As a charity, we are happy to work within any budget.

School Programming

Our Builds offer an experience like no other.

Travel internationally, make new friends, and change lives as you help us with the construction of much-needed projects in a positive, safe environment.


The Academy is a fully-immersive adventure.

How does a 13-week, cross-cultural experience in Mexico sound? You’ll spend time volunteering, learning another language, and contributing to our life-changing projects in the area.


Living a life that cares about people is more fun with friends.

Each day we have the power to better someone’s life through our interactions and purchases, by spending time advocating for a cause we care about, and by investing into larger projects that will have a significant impact.

We love working together to make the world a better place: one person, family, and community at a time. Here are a few ways you can join us.
