CANADA’S YOUTH IN THE NEW ECONOMY
If they fail, we all fail. When they thrive, we all thrive.
When our youth have the skills to thrive, they can lead Canada to a better future. This is Changemaking in Action.
Ashoka U campuses and Ashoka Fellows, together with RBC, are providing youth with the skills — like resilience, critical thinking, collaboration and financial literacy — they need to succeed. During the pandemic, Ashoka U campuses have adapted programming so that participants stay both safe and engaged.
Each year, Ashoka U programs inspire tens of thousands of students to become “shift disturbers”: the next generation of changemakers who will create and enact innovative solutions to solve wicked community problems.
RBC has committed $500 million over 10 years to ensure Canada’s youth thrive in the new economy.
