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. At our WE Are Social Entrepreneurs Youth Leadership Conferences, youth will hear inspirational speeches from WE Speakers and Experts on social change, innovation, and entrepreneurship, receive mentorship from industry professionals and youth change makers, and participate in interactive modules to further develop their skills or kick-start their project of change. If they have the ideas, this is the program to help make them real.
