Future Proscpects

Boston Pizza believes that strong role models inspire kids to be great. This is why we created Future Prospects – because things start to look up when you have someone to look up to.

Research shows that those who have had role models are more likely to*: 

Feel Confident - 92%  
Be Happy - 96%
Hold Leadership Positions - 47%
Have Post-Secondary Education - 63%
Be Employed - 17%

Through our charity partner, Live Different, we help connect kids with role models in their communities to ensure they have the guidance necessary to support their bright futures. Our amazing charity partner has helped us provide positive and meaningful mentorship to children and youth right across Canada.

As one of the largest organizations that speaks to youth in Canada face to face, Live Different offers programs that empower hundreds of thousands of young people every year with the idea that each life has value and that they can make a difference in the world.

Since 2009, the Boston Pizza Foundation has donated over $2.6 million to LiveDifferent’s Canadian Youth Fund—helping reach over 800,000 high school and junior high school students all across Canada with a message of hope and purpose. In 2020, LiveDifferent launched Circles, a new pandemic-proof program, gives students the opportunity to connect and take action. Through collaborative learning, dynamic video content, and the completion of guided compassion projects, Circles helps youth adopt key lifestyle values and impacts communities in meaningful ways.

Every child has the ability to make a difference in the world, and at Boston Pizza we value how important positive role models and mentors are in supporting and inspiring youth to reach their dreams. Through Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects and our partnering organizations, we will work together to ensure ALL kids have the opportunity to have a positive mentor or role model to help support, guide and empower them to become all that they can be.
