About Hamilton Youth Poets

Now in our third year, Hamilton Youth Poets (home of Louder Than A Bomb Canada) creates a culture that transforms the lives of young people and their communities by bringing together participants through writing, publication, and performance education for civic discourse, mental health and community celebration. HYP's programs are all in service of the four primary goals of the organization, which reflect a commitment to helping young people to develop as civically engaged artists. These goals guide program development and inform benchmarks by which HYPS evaluates its working performance:

  1. Galvanize civically-engaged and culturally-literate citizens.
  2. Deliver tools for young people to craft and share stories.
  3. Invigorate educational spaces.
  4. Create pathways for emerging artists.

We believe in putting the art, culture and tools of the telling of stories into the hands of young citizens. We are a group of fun and ambitious individuals and we’re looking for new volunteers to join the team.
