Welcome to SHAD!  Our mission is to empower exceptional youth to make the world a better place. Every July, about 950 of Canada’s best and brightest come together to experience SHAD’s unique experiential-learning program - rooted in the STEAM disciplines of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics – while gaining self-confidence, entrepreneurial and workforce skills, internship opportunities, and a network for life. SHAD Fellows are Change Makers for Canada here at home and around the world.Whether you’re visiting as a future SHAD, a parent, an alum, a donor or a friend of the program, thanks for stopping by.

PS. I know you've been wondering - no SHAD is not an acronym; it’s the name of a creek in Aurora, Ontario where the first program began.
