The BridgingTheGap™ Alliance (BTG Alliance) is a global coalition of youth-focused organizations and industry leaders dedicated to creating pathways for the next generation to thrive.

Our Mission

Our mission is to unite, amplify and measure the collective effort of partner organizations as they strive to motivate, serve and assist young people in creating positive change.

Connect with organizations who share your goals

There are many passionate organizations working to mobilize youth, but most work in isolation, often targeting the same audiences. By joining forces, our voices become stronger to advocate for our issues, attract greater support—financial, policy recognition and otherwise—and reach more youth. United, we are providing unprecedented value for the youth movement and also for our respective organizations.

Why Join

A direct line to youth and key stakeholders

Overcome the social noise by working together to get your messages seen and heard by your target audiences. The BTG Alliance provides public-private stakeholders a gateway to connect with youth-focused organizations like yourself, to recognize the importance of our collective issues and learn how best to get involved. Through collaboration, we can increase our presence and reach new levels of awareness, engagement and action.

Youth insights straight from the source

BTG Alliance partners provide a direct channel to youth with established expertise on the issues stakeholders seek to target. Rather than conducting independent research, enlisting survey panels and/or running isolated campaigns, public-private stakeholders will have greater impact (and higher quality insights) by going straight to the source. By forging these partnerships, we can increase your access to resources and create a platform for youth-focused organizations–and those interested in youth issues–to expand their influence.

New referrals and
partnerships

The BTG Alliance supports partners in forming multi-sector collaborations–liaising between stakeholders–and promoting your initiatives to new sponsors, community partners and program participants. Exchange best practices with like-minded organizations in our mastermind calls, receive speaker invitations to profile your leadership and strengthen your network reach to recruit more active young champions for your cause.

What a wonderful way to bring together so many inspirational leaders and mentors. I very much enjoyed the opportunity to meet and speak with many of the participants [from the BridgingTheGap to Her forum]. The challenges that we face in the world today...make it so important to facilitate conversation, open new doors and forge new connections in order to build networks of support. I commend you on the positive work you are doing to empower young women [and youth-focused organizations] to take charge and initiate positive change.

-The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario
