To provide youth with an employment opportunity and encourage them to explore, learn and grow through outdoor activities.
The Beginning: (2016)
Sumo Egg Rolls started in the summer of 2016 with just one egg roll on the menu, the original veggie egg roll. Today we have largest variety of egg roll choices on this planet. With over 14 different flavor egg rolls on our menu, there's enough flavor to satisfy everyone.
The Middle Part 1: (2021)
As of January 1st, 2021, Sumo Egg Rolls fully transitioned to a non profit organization. This transition all began when we decided to run a pilot youth program in the summer of 2020 (CHECK IT OUT), The program received so much love and support from the community. This ideal that we can provide youth with a employment opportunity and take them on a journey of a life time sounds exciting. A new and exciting journey awaits.
The Middle Part 2: (Future)
Sumo Egg Rolls is currently looking for a space to run our youth program and business.
When the youth are done with the programs, the ideals are such that:
1) the youth had some work experiences
2) the outdoor activities helps them discover their own self interest(s)
3) they understand that building good work ethics are essential to building a good life
4) they learn how to work with others
Why is Sumo Egg Rolls switching gears to a Non-Profit organization?
To understand the change in our mission, we must first re-visit the past.
From 2001 until 2012, I spent a great deal of time at a program called Camp Sunrise. While there, I participated as a camper and worked as a junior counselor as well as a head counselor. As a camper, I was shown so much love and support. As a junior counselor, I was taught the basic fundamentals of how to be a leader. As a head counselor, I grew as a leader and took on more responsibilities.
Fast forward to 2020, I own and operate Sumo Egg Rolls.
Never in a million years could I have imagined my inner flame for youth work to re-ignite. I hope to use my knowledge and experiences to create an excellent organization.
