In this episode of Cause Talk Radio, we head north of the border to chat with some of our Canadian social impact colleagues from two incredibly prominent Canadian organizations: RBC and WE.

RBC’s Senior Director, Youth Strategy and Innovation, Mark Beckles and WE’s Chief Development Officer for Partnerships, Erin Barton joins Megan to talk about a new initiative for their long-standing partnership called WE Are Social Entrepreneurs, focused on empowering young people to succeed in the evolving world of work and nurture an entrepreneurial spirit in young people.

We discuss how the partners are bringing youth together in real life as well as virtually to teach them valuable skills, including coaching and mentorship, to help bring their ideas to life. RBC feels entrepreneurship is, and will continue to be, a critical part of Canada’s economic prosperity and want to be at the forefront of helping nurture budding entrepreneurs.

You won’t believe some of the incredible ideas that 13-year-olds have come up with as part of the WE Are Social Entrepreneurs program! Tune in to hear about the partnership as well as the inspiring ideas it’s helping support.
