An Authentic Community for Young Changemakers

A space to rest, grow and connect

Our Mission

Our mission is to foster a vibrant community of young changemakers, equipped with the skills and supports to achieve their goals and create sustainable impact.

We envision a world where changemaking is valued, sustainable and fairly compensated

We spoke with over 50 Canadian young changemakers, ages 18-30, to understand the drivers for their work, challenges they face, and the types of supports they need. They seek:

  • Fair compensation and valuing of their work and skills

  • Access to the resources and connections of more established organizations

  • Shared space with those who understand their unique journeys as changemakers

We support those
who support others

A powerful and widespread opportunity for social change is created

when barriers are removed for those creating real impact in their communities.

Young people are critical agents of change,

demonstrating tangible impact through their changemaking work.  ​

FUEL is driven by youth voice.

Everything we do, we do through authentic co-creation with youth.

We welcome partners and collaborators - youth-led, youth-serving organizations, community organizations, and others who believe in this work.

Youth Voices Define Our Work

Through my work,
I make space for others.
But at times it felt like no one was making space for me.
 As a changemaker you can become disillusioned.
So having other people around you doing this work is a good way to keep that hope.
That feeling of not being heard,
of not having a voice, is why I started this work.

We at FUEL hold ourselves accountable to acknowledging the lands we are privileged to work upon and the First Peoples whose stories, beliefs, and cultures have nurtured and continue to nurture these lands.

In the spirit of Truth and Reconciliation, we acknowledge that we operate on the traditional and unceded territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples, which has since become home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We also acknowledge the many other nations that walked this territory. 


While acknowledging territory and First Peoples is important; we at FUEL understand that it is only a small part of cultivating strong relationships with the First Peoples of Canada. Acknowledging territory and First Peoples should take place within the larger context of genuine and ongoing work to forge real understanding and challenge the legacies of colonialism.
