Earlier this year, we partnered with Raising The Roof (Chez Toit) to make baseball caps for their latest initiative, Altitude. Raising the Roof is an organization that partners with diverse stakeholders to tackle and provide long-term solutions to homelessness. Our team had the pleasure to work with a group of bright and driven individuals in the design and development of three baseball caps for Altitude.
Altitude is an initiative that supports youth facing barriers to employment by providing professional training and meaningful work experience. The program employs youth from the Greater Toronto Area and provides them with practical skills and knowledge to catapult into the professional world. Working with the youth in the design of the baseball caps was the most rewarding part of this experience. We sat down together to brainstorm ideas and discuss the features of the caps to make their vision come to life.
We were honored to work with the very first Altitude cohort, and we are all in to help them reach the goal of selling 1,000 caps. You can find these caps in our pop-up events and retail locations. All proceeds go towards the program and the support of Raising the Roof’s mission, vision, and values. You can learn more at https://www.raisingtheroof.org/what-we-do/our-initiatives/
