This April 2018, 500 youth will gather for two days of future-proofing sessions in beautiful Victoria, BC. The event spans two action-packed days and will feature world-class speakers, inspirational entertainment, and unique idea-generating methods to draw out the most interesting conversations and ideas from youth. On hand to guide and assist the students will be 50 inspiring facilitators, policy makers, business owners, educators, entertainers and others who are part of the “living library” who will act as catalysts for stronger communities.

It takes a village to raise a child, right? So we've created space for the village to gather. We've reserved Friday evening before the Summit begins to give the grownups a glimpse into what the young'uns are up to — and why we're doing it in the first place. The Village Bash opens the doors to parents, mentors, grandparents, educators, supporters and all the other big thinkers who are joining together to give youth what they need most. To ask questions. To drive change.
