Youth for Causes
Youth for Causes (YFC) originated in Singapore and has been adapted by Osaka YMCA’s into a social enterprise training program currently run as core curriculum at its international business college in collaboration with the Global Department. The program educates participants on how to create their own social business and then challenges them to work in teams to make their business plans a reality so they can support a cause they believe in. The program culminates in a “Dragon’s Den” where participants present their team achievements and pitch to a panel of judges for an expansion of their business. YFC will include non-YMCA schools and universities in the future.
