Former Federal Minister and Senior Advisor
When I was Canada's Minister of International Development, I came to fully appreciate the huge impact that our youth have on making the world a better place for those in need, and I then made a commitment to myself to continue to support our youth in their journey.

Young people are the energy that will carry our world forward with kindness and appreciation for the talents of others and the fragility of the environment. CWY-JCM connects them globally and locally.
Private Equity Investor
Youth are obviously the future. I think helping them gain experiences in working and living with different cultures and socio-economic groups will make them into more rounded, mature and thoughtful adults.

Young people are the key to a better future. An investment in them, will pay dividends better than any stock or bond.
I am committed to creating inclusive spaces for marginalized youth and young women, and investing in youth to ensure the sustainability of innovation-driven social justice work.
Vice-President, Programming and Operations
Youth are legitimate and important development actors in their communities and around the world. I invest in young people because I believe that youth-adult partnership is among the most important and effective means of supporting youth in fostering positive and sustainable development.
Program and Administration Team
If we can support youth with good educational opportunities and fully engage them, they will be more resilient and face any societal challenges.
I continue to invest in young people to promote good health and well-being for themselves, communities, and future generations.

If we all can afford a pen, I can afford to choose investing in writing my future. As a young person, I am investing in youth for tomorrow's harvest to be a sustainable and enjoyable decent life.
Working with youth has helped me grow as an educator and youth programmer. By creating and participating in inter-generational spaces we can be challenged and inspired by the new ideas and ways of doing things brought forward by young people.
I am proud of my contribution to CWY-JCM as I firmly believe that empowered youth play a crucial part in building a better future for all.
I’m investing in young people because they have the drive, desire, and passion to create a more just and equitable world for us all.
As a young person, I feel that my education and volunteer opportunities have empowered me to be a change-maker and encouraged me to support the empowerment of fellow youth.
The ideas, work, and skills that the youth offer are quite unique and boundless. Through empowering and investing in the youth, we empower and invest in our futures.
