Business, School & Community

YouthNet endeavours to be a leader in inspiring sustainable change, through developing partnerships with diverse non-profits, businesses, government agencies, faith-based and other community or sports organizations.

By offering opportunities to work together in partnership toward a common goal, YouthNet strives to bridge differences, stimulate innovative community initiatives, and create new synergy around social issues, through volunteering and community service.

“When peer organizations honestly embrace shared goals and clearly articulate how they will achieve them, collaboration works. Most important is believing that a group – even of ‘competitors’ – can accomplish what no one organization could do alone.” Harvard Business Review
