Join us at the YSE Workshop
We invite you to join us and our friends in the business of doing good at the Fireside Chat on “Youth Leadership and Development: A Generation of Change” to learn and share, as well as to meet the aspiring changemakers.
The youth who lead social enterprises play an important role in shaping our world. They need to be equipped with skills to lead, manage and organise staff and resources to achieve desired outcomes. This Fireside Chat brings together founders, thought leaders and innovators in the social impact space. This interactive session will explore the qualities of youth leadership and the kind of support needed to unleash the potential of changemakers.
