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.
Founder of Maven Water & Environment
I believe in investing in youth because we owe it to our world and to ourselves.
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 in the face of any societal challenges.
I continue to invest in young people to promote good health and well-being for themselves, communities, and future generations.
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.
