Open Up Possibilities.
The Kids4Kids Youth Summit is an annual two-day forum for young people aged 12 to 17 years old to be engaged in real-life hands-on learning and be empowered with skillsets ready to take the next step in becoming social entrepreneurs, with the belief that they are never too young to change the world.
Participants will be inspired by industry leaders who use their "Power" skills and speakers who are "Purpose" driven championing social causes they care about.
Through the Youth Summit, students can meet and learn from their peers from other schools, be inspired by experts from different industries, explore and discuss local and international social issues, acquire innovative problem-solving skills, and enter the competition to implement their projects with seed funds and mentor support from Kids4Kids for up to 6 months.
