“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much” - Hellen Keller
How it all started
Let’s Get Together vision came after Alison Canning left her career to stay home and take care of her children particularly her teenage daughter who needed more support and guidance.
She took an active role in her children’s education and got involved with the school’s parent council. It was there, she saw the need for more educational assistance for youth and parents, the need to reduce the digital divide and the growing demand to make learning resources more equitable and accessible.
Her strong belief that partnerships and connections strengthen community and enhance student success, serves as the foundation for Let’s Get Together.
With the support of friends and community partners, Let’s Get Together evolved, and today is a nonprofit organization that aims to make learning equitable and education accessible.
We envision a world where every youth has equal opportunity to pursue higher education with no barriers and purposeful support.
The need for computers is overwhelming and it continues to grow everyday. Right now, we’re refurbishing a computer for a terminally ill youth so he can play Minecraft game and socialize on-line with buddies.
Our ultimate goal is for every individual across Canada to own a computer, have access to internet service and a clear pathway to enhance their digital literacy by 2025.
