This summer, we announced a four-year partnership with The Co-operators to expand and enhance the IMPACT! Youth Sustainability Leadership Program. This Program is comprised of three pillars: Trainings, Conference, and the Fund.
The IMPACT! Sustainability Champions Trainings are three-day regional trainings followed by four months of support including mentorship, resources, access to co-working space and professional coaching on business and project plans. To date, we’ve offered 13 regional trainings. This fall, we will branch out into two new regions: London, ON and Saskatoon, SK. We hope to soon announce our long-awaited return to Vancouver as well.
The IMPACT! Youth Sustainability Leadership Conference is an all-expenses paid gathering with the goal to inspire, educate, and connect youth from across the country (the next occurrence will be May 2017).
The IMPACT! Fund is the final integral piece of the IMPACT! Program. To date it has provided over $500,000 in seed funding for IMPACT! participants and alumni who are starting, enhancing or scaling projects and social enterprises that bring positive change to their communities.
To ensure that all current and emerging young leaders aged 19-30 get the chance to participate in the upcoming trainings, please forward this information and encourage them to learn more and apply today.
