WHAT WE DO
ThinkFirst teaches school-aged children and youth, sports teams, and community volunteers, to safely participate in the activities they enjoy. Our message is promoted through our advocating for healthy public policy, as well as our participation in a number of coalitions that raise injury prevention awareness in communities across the country.

Our vision at ThinkFirst Canada is for a future free of traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries among our children and youth.
We work towards our goal - a measurable reduction in these injuries- everyday through the creation, dissemination, and evaluation of our educational initiatives, public advocacy, and by giving kids and those who care for them the tools and information they need to use their minds to protect their bodies.
At the core of ThinkFirst's injury prevention activities are our programs. Developed with expert working groups, they are designed to help children and youth - together with their parents, coaches, and teachers - understand how to prevent common and serious injuries associated with a number of high-risk activities, while keeping active and having fun. Fewer injuries mean more participation in the sports and activities we all love!
