Teams of young social entrepreneurs will be on hand to showcase how they are leveraging their passion and skills to generate solutions to school and community challenges, including homelessness, autism awareness, support for foster children, environmental conservation and animal welfare. 
In addition to networking and enjoying one-on-one presentations from the youth Venture teams, the drop-in expo will also feature live and silent auctions, appetizers and cocktails.
