What is New VU?

We are a collective of innovative professionals who work together to initiate growth and change within individuals, organizations, schools, businesses, and communities.

The New VU model

A not-for-profit community development organization that operates as a social enterprise, we combine the skill and strategy of a business with the spirit and dedication of a charity to help people create the change they wish to see in themselves and in the world. Any extra money raised through our efforts is reinvested back into community initiatives.

Our Expertise

We are committed to working with you to create innovative and sustainable change that positively impacts the social, economic and cultural fabric of your organization, community or business. We understand the challenges facing communities are complex and so we bring together people from various sectors (business, not-for-profits, government  and First Nations) to examine issues from a systems perspective, paying special attention to how things fit together to create present day reality.  We look for opportunities to innovate, then draw from our network of collaborators to co-create initiatives takes aim at the root causes.
