What We Do

Our mission is to educate, activate, and empower young people to engage in social, environmental and economic justice movements and to create a more equitable, democratic and sustainable future. Our main activities include offering youth-led workshops in schools and community spaces, and building youth leadership.

Who We Are

Check Your Head: the Youth Global Education Network is a youth-driven not-for-profit organization founded in 1999 and based in Vancouver, British Columbia, on unceded Coast Salish territories.
  • I cannot overstate how important and exciting Check Your Head’s work has become to the local struggle for social justice and against corporate globalization. Check Your Head is a joy to work with. Their dedication is inspiring, and their skills as organizers and educators are top notch. They are a bright new light in the struggle for economic, social and environmental justice.

  • My volunteer work with Check Your Head has connected me with many amazing and inspiring people many of whom I am still connected with today. I had opportunities to grow with the organization as I moved from delivering workshops to leading facilitation training to sitting on the Board of Directors for a number of years. Being a truly youth driven organization, I felt valued and supported as I developed into my own person.
