Featured Young Entrepreneur - Beautiful Minds


Beautiful Minds provides support services to youth who have learning disabilities, mental health disorders, autism or those who need a helping hand.

Child and youth work is unique as it comes from a strengths-based perspective. Child and youth work is based on the foundation that we plant seeds in every youth we meet. This is the notion that we plant ideas that empower youth to develop into the best person they can be. Growth takes progress, time and effort but every youth has the capacity to succeed.

Through planned and organized activities youth will enhance their resiliency, build their self-worth and self-esteem. Beautiful Minds empowers youth to see their ability.
