The YLC portion of CYOAV concludes with a pitch competition, where each student team presents the Design that they Develop according to the community needs they Discover. A panel of entrepreneurs and local community members engaged by the students will judge their pitches and select the best solution. The winning team advances to the final CYOAV phase and will be paid $10/hr to operationalize their business model and Deliver their solution to the community, and further qualifies to earn a Youth Employability Certificate (YEC) in addition to the YLC. Students lead their way through CYOAV with the aid of trained WHOA! facilitators.
