Youth entrepreneurs discuss their initiative called FocalOttawa, which involves supporting local businesses in Ottawa and helping youth in the community.
These youth leaders promote the stores and products of local businesses and in exchange, these businesses donate funds to Bridges over Barriers, a charity that supports Ottawa Carleton District School Board students in need through basic necessities, mental and physical health support.
77 days after the project began, the youth of FocalOttawa raised $5000 for Bridges over Barriers.
