Springboard Employment Services and IMPACT 'n Communities have partnered to deliver Passion 2 Purpose (P2P), a dynamic and innovative Youth Entrepreneurship program.

The program sparks the entrepreneurial spirit in youth (under 29 years) by focusing their energy, creativity and talents to start their own business, social enterprise or business concept. Our information sessions, referrals, and professional resources open participants’ eyes to the exciting possibilities of cultivating their talents to the establishment of their own business ventures. Participants with entrepreneurial ambitions are engaged through interactive workshops, and meet with professional mentors and guest speakers.

Since 2014, P2P has successfully trained 50 youth businesses. The program focuses on the development of a successful business plan/model, hands-on training and mentoring with up to $3,000 in micro-financing available.

P2P provides the tools and supports for youth to gain extensive business knowledge, explore opportunities, and practical experience - integrating the skills necessary to bring enterprising ideas to life!
