Young Innovators Camp York Region (August)
The Young Innovators Program Helps Youth Build Big Ideas!
The FDS Young Innovators Program empowers kids to create, innovate and develop their entrepreneurial skills. We help kids uncover their passion, build prototypes and pitch solutions that bring meaningful change to the world. Students learn design methods and get hands-on experience building new business offerings.
Developed with world-class entrepreneurs and educators, the FDS experience is unique, transformative and an amazing way to develop leadership and critical thinking skills. Students are mentored throughout the process, and are exposed to thought leaders through our global network of entrepreneurs. Throughout the program they develop stronger confidence in themselves as creative entrepreneurs.
