What is YouthX Live?

YouthX Live is a platform designed to inspire, educate, and give the youth access to networking opportunities with our changemakers and other like-minded individuals – all while providing quality entertainment to keep you enthralled.

Each event has 3 segments

TalkX: A series of masterclasses hosted by each of our changemakers. They will take us through their respective journeys and share practical advice and valuable lessons that they’ve learnt along the way. During these interactive sessions you can address all those burning questions to our panel of speakers.

Money talks: One of our financial experts will share valuable financial advice on the topics you want to know more about so that you can make plans for your future today.

Power panel: A panel consisting of our changemakers, a financial expert and a community member who have made a real impact will touch on relevant topics, share insights and answer your questions.

Each YouthX Live event is dedicated to a different YouthX category. Learn more about the YouthX categories and their subcategories.
