Youth Impact Summit

Location: MaRS Discovery District, 101 College St, Toronto

On September 21 and 22, the Youth Impact Summit will host 150 youth ages 16-30 to reimagine how young Ontarians lead their communities.

To mark Ontario’s 150th birthday, the Government of Ontario is interested in hearing young people’s ideas about the future of community engagement and is investing in youth through the Youth Opportunities Fund.

Together with 50 organizations, we will examine what youth initiatives are working and what opportunities have been missing.

We will collaborate on new ideas and discover new strategies for community engagement. The experiences, ideas and feedback that you share will be used to create a report on how to more effectively promote and support young leaders in Ontario.
