The Hot Potato Initiative was founded in September 2016 by a group of high school students from Burnaby Mountain Secondary in Vancouver, BC. The movement has since grown to hundreds of young leaders from dozens of high schools across the Lower Mainland. We are actively working to bring the movement to cities across Canada.
The Initiative is led exclusively by youth. We believe in shaping a generation of changemakers who are cognizant of injustices, instilled with the values of social stewardship, and empowered to stand up, stand out, and stand for something.
