CIBC Youthvision Scholarship - Thanks for tuning in!

August 5, 2013

On June 20th, over 200 in-person and online CIBC Youthvision Scholars, mentors, families and friends connected for the first time in 15 years at the CIBC Digital Youth Forum. They gained advice on challenges facing kids and young adults today from an expert panel, as well as shared their own experiences on what it is like to complete university, find a job, and manage finances. Thank you to everyone who helped to enrich the Youth Forum through sharing your stories.
