SEEDS Connections

SEEDS Connections empowers youth to create positive change by providing educational programs which engage Canadian students in experiential learning opportunities in the areas of diversity, environment, energy, and leadership.


Our programs have involved over 40,000 students, who have completed over 50,000 environmental and diversity projects, and impacted audiences of more than 75,000, since 2011.

Locally and Canada wide, our communities are seeing increasing change in our natural environments and in the diversity of our populations. Diversity, inclusion and environmental education for youth in the areas of acceptance, understanding, sustainability and positive action is vital to creating a world in which we all wish to live.
