Why become a member?

To support youth learning, Hive supports member organizations by providing opportunities for educators to develop skills, share knowledge, and collaborate through the following mechanisms:

  • Cultivating a community of practice: Community calls, meetups, online communication platform, consultation on program and curriculum development
  • Facilitating professional development: Digital literacy trainings, cultivating and sharing training opportunities
  • Acting as a conduit: To other organizations, to funders, to opportunities for youth, promotion
  • Seeding collaborative partnerships: Informal partnerships, pooling funding from outside funders for cross-member to develop new digital learning opportunities for youth

By joining Hive Toronto, members commit to contributing to a collaborative community of practice. We often explain Hive as a potluck: members have different needs, or “appetites,” but like any good potluck, you take what you need while contributing what you can.

There are two types of membership you can apply to join the Hive Toronto network:

Hive Member:

Organizations or institutions that:

  • Must be a registered not for profit in Canada (this requirement is necessary to apply for Hive Toronto mini-grant funding)
  • Provide youth development and learning opportunities directly to young people in the Greater Toronto Area.
  • Invest in increasing access and equity in education through digital media and web literacy.
  • Commit to ongoing learning and innovation for both educators and youth participants.
  • Commit to creating and contributing to inclusive learning environments within and outside of their organization.

Community Ally:

Organizations that are aligned with Hive’s core principles and practices but do not meet Hive Member criteria. This can include community organizing groups, community focused coalitions etc.

These groups showcase a commitment to:

  • Investing in increasing access and equity in education through digital media and web literacy.
  • Commit to ongoing learning and innovation for both educators and youth participants.
  • Commit to creating and contributing to inclusive learning environments within and outside of their organization.
