Our Team

Take Root Initiative

Sprout Organization is a youth-led non-profit organization that strives to curate meaningful experiences in the communities in which it serves. Founded in 2019, Sprout has since organized 5 major summer events in 3 cities across Ontario. In only 4 years, Sprout has expanded quickly with tens of thousands of attendees and over 100 volunteers annually. Our organization strengthens culture and identity through social connections.

Our Vision

Our vision is to empower and uplift the next generation by focusing on the preservation of culture and tradition. Through collaborative learning and self-expression, we aim to unify communities to build a strong sense of belonging and social connections.


Our mission is to create accessible community events that construct positive perceptions of diversity and welcome active community participation. We strive to impact under-represented and diverse voices by providing opportunities to develop relevant experience.


In 2023, Sprout Organization launched the “Take Root” initiative where we learn from and collaborate with other organizations within the community whose vision and values align with our own. One organization is chosen annually to act as our beneficiary. A portion of the proceeds raised at our organized events are donated to the beneficiary at the end of the season. Each beneficiary must utilize the funds donated to directly support their cause. In relation to Canada’s Overall Quality of Life Framework, our beneficiary is chosen with the following societal values in mind:

Culture and Identity

Organizations who:

  • contribute to one’s sense of pride in belonging to Canada
  • instil the positive perception of diversity
  • provide opportunities for participation in specialized groups

Social Cohesion and Connections

Organizations who:

  • foster a sense of belonging to the local community
  • offer volunteering opportunities and accessible environments 
  • nurture relationships with others
