Youth for Youth (Y2) is two-part event where high-school students between 15 and 18 years old learn how to bring a business idea from concept to customer validation to pitch presentation.

Supported throughout the event by a full-time coach, participant teams articulate their value proposition, validate their product or service with potential customers, estimate financial performance, and present to a panel of entrepreneurs and other leaders. The top-2 teams are awarded prizes that will help them continue on their entrepreneurial journey.

Y2 is organized entirely by a dedicated team of volunteers in York Region. Thus, emphasizing the strong element of “Youth For Youth.”
