Youth Canada

About Us


Youth Canada is an initiative started in August 2006 by two Vancouver high school students, Alex Shipillo and Michael Gelbart. After participating in many enrichment programs and struggling through scholarship and university applications, Alex and Michael decided to pass on some of their knowledge and enthusiasm to other high school students.
