The Infinite Expansion Foundation was created from our founder's personal experience of adversity. The ability to express yourself is fundamental in the development of self-awareness and self-love. Our goal is to provide youth with the tools, environment, community and mentors with lived experience to facilitate their growth towards their true selves in the face of pressures at home, school and in their lives. Our flagship program is the Art Mentorship Program for at–risk youth. Our vision is to provide a safe space for youth to socialize after school and express through work experience, life skills such as time management, money management, fitness, visual art, music, poetry, dance and yoga.

About Infinite Expansion Foundation

Our vision is to create a safe space free from judgment and provide the necessary tools to allow kids to find their own method of self-expression. Our team of intellectuals, artisans, and mentors (who have followed the "wrong path", learned their lessons, and are now living their dream lives) share their knowledge to inspire youth to find their true expression through healthy activities and hobbies to redirect addictive and destructive behaviours.

Goals

  • Prevent addiction, crime and violence through connection, self-expression, and inspiration.

  • Provide a safe space that inspires connection with peers and mentors.

  • Positive role models equip our participants with tools to realize their dreams.

All proceeds from this auction will fund the Arts Program for at-risk youth.
