Services to social impact

This initiative will address the unique needs facing Canadian women aged 20-24 as a result of COVID-19. The G(irls)20’s Services to Social Impact Project will work with young women transitioning out of the services sector and into social entrepreneurship, by equipping them with social, emotional and entrepreneurship skills to launch social impact businesses, such as training girls to code and launching a diversity consulting business, and through one-to-one coaching.

By developing social enterprises, young women will be able to take control over their careers and offer productive, impactful businesses to the Canadian economy.
