This year’s Youth Innovation Summit showcased the work of 14 of our most exceptional Active Citizens trainees at Parliament Hill in Ottawa. The Summit was an excellent opportunity for networking, peer-to-peer learning and capacity building. In addition to pitching and receiving feedback on their ideas, Young Innovators also participated in professional development workshops and coaching sessions with social enterprise experts from Canada, the UK and beyond, helping them to give shape to their ideas and take them to the next level.
