Youth Inspire Community Day has inspired me to take leadership and help out my community members. I may be too young to start a business now, but I can slowly grow my resilience and motivation so that I can accomplish these larger goals in the near future.
Youth inspire day is so beneficial for the youth and I wish everyone got the opportunity to participate. I’ve learned a lot from the event and will definitely be putting some of the information to use.
Youth Inspire Community Day helps us understand that there are people out there who have been through some of the same things as us and didn’t give up. Some changed themselves while others tried harder to become better. The event helped me connect to the speakers and feel motivated to try my best and and persevere.

are you ready to become a partner for change?
