The SKETCH BFF Program is our answer to cause marketing and helping local businesses achieve their own corporate social responsibility goals.  Our BFFs are corporate partners who have promised a set dollar amount or percentage to be donated to SKETCH for an extended time period. It’s through these partnerships that help bridge the communication interaction between private and not for profit spaces. We hope that through our BFF Program we’re able to educate, learn and grow alongside our BFFs.

Team building that gives back

SKETCH has successfully launched an employee engagement, team building workshop Nourish, which provides opportunities for groups of 6-15 people to spend an afternoon in the SKETCH kitchen preparing healthy meals that directly support young people in SKETCH programs.

This team building experience is accessible to culinary experts and novices alike. Led by SKETCH Culinary Artists, your team will prepare and create food for two full meals for up to 80 SKETCH participants. At the end of the workshop you will have an opportunity to sit down together and enjoy some of the food you’ve prepared. SKETCH Nourish provides a thoughtful way for teams to have fun while making social impact.

To learn more about ways your company can connect or to take a tour, contact Dale Roy at or 416-516-1559 ext 3401

SKETCH COMMUNITY UPDATE (as of April 2, 2020)

Friends, we hope you are safe and healthy!

SKETCH is taking a pause in its usual programming to respond thoughtfully to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Spring and Summer programs will not happen as originally planned.

We are working to create remote offerings such as live streaming, video workshops, and online referrals support (in particular to connect with funds that can support youth, 16-29, during the pandemic).

We are aiming to have some in-person programs up and running by Fall 2020!

Please stay tuned to our social media accounts for updates. If you have any questions or concerns, email us at


Check out our Project Home campaign to help us get home!

We need your support.

Help us to get through this time when all our funding is affected!

SKETCH celebrates the creativity and resilience of young people during this time (and always)! The ARTS can lead us! Take a listen to this new release from artist, Ben Wood
