From Ideation to Execution
Kids4Kids Youth Summit is our flagship annual two-day forum 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 ideation skills and speakers who are "Purpose" and “Passion” driven to champion community causes they care about.
Through the Youth Summit, students can meet and learn from their peers from all backgrounds, be inspired by experts from various industries, explore and discuss local and international UN SDGs-related community issues, acquire innovative problem-solving skills, and enter the competition to implement their projects with seed funding and mentor support from Kids4Kids for up to 6 months.
Youth Summit: Day 1
On Day 1, students will begin the ideation process by brainstorming ideas for their projects with corporate volunteers, skilled volunteers, and Young Entrepreneurs alumni. Participants will then engage in Purpose and Passion workshops, where they will be inspired by young professionals from corporates and NGOs, to get insights of the real world and understand how to engage UN SDGs into real cases.
Throughout the Summit, students gain understanding about the root causes of community issues, collaborate with each other, and ideate, innovate, and design their own UN SDG inspired community projects.
