From world-changing ideas to reality

The WE Are Social Entrepreneurs program, made possible by RBC, is designed to help young Canadians take their ideas for social change to the next level. They’ll have the opportunity to join like-minded youth in Youth Leadership conferences across the country, participate in interactive workshops with subject matter experts, compete in our Business Case Challenge and win a spot in our Social Enterprise Incubation program, where they’ll receive one-on-one mentoring. If they have the ideas, this is the program to help make them real.
