EQWIP HUBs Canadian volunteers raise funds for global youth innovation

EQWIP HUBs is an innovative project created by Canada World Youth and Youth Challenge International that helps young women and men harness their talents, skills and abilities through customized training and support. The project enables youth to discover their own economic solutions to sustainable development and help create a better future for all. As part of EQWIP HUBs’ mission to put youth in control of their own future, a Youth Innovation Fund has been created to support new businesses and increase the resilience of fledgling ventures. To help them achieve their entrepreneurship goals, EQWIP HUBs, in collaboration with local partners, is providing local youth with business coaching, training, seed capital and mentorship opportunities through the Youth Innovation Fund.  To find out more about the Youth Innovation Fund, click here.

If you’re an experienced young Canadian looking to put your skills into action for youth development, we have opportunities for you. Visit the EQWIP HUBs website to see all current opportunities.
