The success of CYBF’s world class program hinges on two critical elements: the community partners who act as our storefront in neighbourhoods from coast to coast to coast and the roster of more than 4,000 volunteer mentors who ensure the success of our young entrepreneurs.

Each year, as part of our Chairman’s Awards, we recognize the key contributors to our success by awarding the CYBF Outstanding National Mentor Award and the CYBF Outstanding Community Partner Award.

This year, we’re pleased to announce that Kevin Schwenker, mentor to April Glavine at Lean Machine Healthy Vending Service Inc. will be awarded the Outstanding National Mentor Award at our Chairman’s Awards taking place in May.

In the Outstanding Community Partner Award Category, we’re pleased to announce a tie! Congratulations to Business Victoria of Victoria, BC and to SAJE accompagnateur d’entrepreneurs from Montréal, QC for your outstanding contribution to our success!

A hearty congratulations to all of this years’ provincial winners – read more about them here.

Until next time,


Get up to $60,000
in financial support,
and the support of one
of our 2,400+ mentors.
