About Us

Let's Sprout is sparking a global movement in which we are all connected to our values and have an increased capacity to challenge social and environmental injustices.

Let’s Sprout is proof that an idea, a conversation, or a friendship can spark a movement.  We are a group of young women that wanted to create opportunities for young girls to connect with themselves, and be emboldened to demand environmental and social justice in their communities.  

 

We met in 2015, dreaming of creating a program that our younger selves would have fallen in love with. As budding change-makers, we wanted to prove to young people that it is possible to identify a need in your community and be part of the solution.  We saw the need for intergenerational mentorship that focussed on the intersection between gender and the environment. Now, we host capacity building workshops and week-long leadership camps for all youth to realize their immense power to foster positive social and environmental change.
