About Capitalize for Kids
Waitlists are too long for kids to access the mental health services they need, and funding from government, private donors and corporate partners has remained stagnant. Without increases to funding, mental health service providers are struggling to keep up with the increased demand.
Capitalize for Kids exists to build capacity for mental health service providers. We aim to work with great organizations such as Kids Help Phone, The George Hull Centre for Children and Families and Yorktown Family Services to help more kids with the existing funding and staff in the system.
We work with mental health service providers to identify their opportunities to build capacity. We then work collaboratively with our consulting partners from Bain, The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), McKinsey and RBC Strategy and Transformation Services to design solutions to those capacity building opportunities.
Once a solution has been designed, we fund, implement and measure outcomes. Upon project completion, we continue to work with our beneficiaries to ensure the solutions continues to perform and enable more kids to access the care they need.
We then create and disseminate comprehensive guides to our solutions, supported by evidence of impact. This enables mental health service providers across Canada to have the tools and knowledge to evolve what they do and how they work.

A Day in the Life
It’s cliché, but incredibly true – no two days are alike. By the nature of the work we do, our days vary dramatically depending on the projects we’re working on and where in the process we are. Some weeks we’ll be heavily focused on project scoping with a beneficiary in their offices, while others weeks we’ll be working closely with a consulting team from one of the top firms to design solutions. Other days are spent with our headphones plugged in, cramming through an excel analysis and researching potential solution pathways. If you’re someone who loves variability in your work and enjoys taking on challenges that you could have never anticipated, then Capitalize for Kids is the perfect fit.
