Who we are

Providing a platform
for youth voices

INKspire is a youth-led nonprofit organization that aims to amplify the voices of youth by providing a safe and inclusive platform. INKspire encourages youth to take on leadership roles and share their perspectives through their writing, in an effort to tackle the under-representation of young writers in mainstream media.

Our Story

From humble beginnings
to continued growth

INKspire was founded in 2016 through a Kickstarter campaign that accumulated a funding of over $10,000 from more than 170 backers. Thereafter, INKspire’s initiatives have assisted countless numbers of youth writers across Canada, who have contributed to INKspire’s online publication that has over 1000 articles.


Our values

Guided by our Core Values


INKspire strives to empower young writers to voice their opinions and perspectives on topics ranging from science and technology to social issues and the arts.


INKspire challenges the status quo by encouraging young writers to contribute to mainstream media through INKspire’s writing platform, an innovative way to highlight the voices of youth.


INKspire is dedicated to ensuring youth perspectives are reflected in mainstream media by encouraging them to write on topics that are significant to them in a safe and welcoming environment.
