Open Up Possibilities.
The Kids4Kids Youth Summit, previously known as Powered By Youth (PBY), is an annual three-day summit for young people aged 12 to 18 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 community 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 community 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.

Youth Summit: Day 1
The Youth Summit is an annual 2-day forum which allows secondary students from different schools to gather together and learn from inspiring speakers, facilitators and each other.
On Day 1, students will attend Purpose keynotes (Pitching, Justice, Youth Purpose Panel) and Power keynotes (Health Wellbeing, Functional Wellness, Sustainability) targeting community issues that the students care about, along with the opportunity to watch a Tai Chi dance performed by Ms. Ella Tham.
