Help Me Develop Youth Leadership in Guelph

Thank you for giving to Helping  Me To Develop Youth Leadership in Guelph. I have raised all the funds needed to .participate in the  C2 Conference 2019 and the Movin'on Summit. They will help me to grow the capacity of Career Aviators to fund non-profit organizations in the provision of innovative leadership and play programs that strengthen youth dealing with stressful life situations.

I am overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity and encouragement of nearly of everyone I contacted and no words can properly express my sense of appreciation.

I commit to demonstrating  that that all gifts to this campaign will give back to youth in Guelph over and over again.

Please follow me on to hear about my experiences and ongoing work in this area.


As many of you know, through my personal passion and my social purpose company “Career Aviators”, I contribute to the growth of innovative  youth leadership programming  in Guelph and the surrounding area.  I have been offered an opportunity that will allow me to expand the impact of Career Aviators and our charitable beneficiaries who receive 100% of our profit . 

I have been selected as one of just 29 core speaker support volunteers for the prestigious C2 Conference 2019 and the Movin'on Summit in Montreal (May/June 2019).   These conferences are renowned educational experiences that draw the top international thinkers and business leaders to focus on business development for a better planet.  Learning from this community will provide me with innovative approaches and new networks to advance youth programming as I grow Career Aviators!

My volunteer acceptance waives the registration fee of $6000.00 for both conferences.   Career Aviators is in its start-up phase and unfortunately, we don’t have a professional development fund to cover the associated costs.  My volunteer participation at these conferences is contingent on raising these funds by May 8, 2019.  I am seeking your assistance in financing the accommodation, meals, transportation etc - Below, I have provided a breakdown of these expenses.

Recent update: I am very grateful to an anonymous donor. Your gift will be matched with an equivalent amount until the donor reaches his total commitment of  500.00 


What will your investment  enable me to do?
