The Power of Youth Contest

We’re giving away $10,000 to empower youth to make their communities better.

We think youth are pretty awesome and have the power to change their communities. They’re doing some great things out there. But hey, sometimes doing great things can cost a little money. This summer, we’re empowering youth to positively impact their communities by lending a little help in the form of some cold hard cash.

2018 winners are demonstrating the power of youth.


We checked in with the 2018 #ThePowerOfYouth Contest winners to see what they’ve been up to.


Empowering youth year-round.

Every year, Coast Capital invests 10% of our bottom line into programs that give youth a hand up.  
Since 2000, that's more than $76 million.

We focus on youth because they represent our future and yet many young people face more than their share of challenges on their journey to financial independence.

We believe that helping a young person brings benefits to the whole community. It’s our aspiration to empower youth to become change makers and inspire them to pay it forward.
