Youth coaches offer one on one business coaching for our Youth Small Business Program, a three-month training program held at our Toronto location.

Make a difference

If you’ve always wanted to make a difference, this is your chance! Your support helps young entrepreneurs realize their entrepreneurial ambitions and change their lives. You can give back and reduce stigma for people who are overcoming mental health and addiction challenges

What do I need to do?

As a youth coach, you commit to 9 hours total over three months. Attend three evening in-class coaching sessions for two hours per session and also provide 1-3 hours of email support over the duration of the classes as needed. We ask that you stay involved for the duration of our three-month program during either our Fall or Winter schedule.
