NEW - BC Aboriginal Youth Social Enterprise Contest
Aboriginal youth are finding ways to build better futures for themselves and their communities. Through social enterprise, Aboriginal youth can develop a way to earn a meaningful living while bringing a much needed service or product to their communities in a way that also helps their communities and/or the environment.
This contest will highlight the social enterprises that Aboriginal youth are developing throughout BC and encourage other Aboriginal youth to develop businesses that help their communities. The contest concludes with public presentations from contest finalists March 17 to 20, 2015 at the GOV 2015 conference in Prince George, B.C.
