Youth right now are apathetic about social and environmental issues right now.


Break the Divide inspires youth and fosters the connections of communities to tackle these global issues together.


Through collaboration, students create action projects to address these specific issues.

Our Focus

BTD began with a focus on Mental Health, Climate Action, and Reconciliation. These remain central tenets of the work we do.

Mental Health

Not only prominent in Arctic communities, youth suicide and mental health is one of the most pressing issues facing society today.

Climate Action

Climate change is real. Talk to BTD members who’ve experienced flooding in India or hurricanes in Florida. Let’s tell the world.

Truth and Reconcilation

Across Turtle Island, reconciliation with Indigneous peoples is paramount. It’s time to take a stand.

We’ve recognized the power of empathy in changing mindsets. Now, BTD members can create specific changes in their communities.
