In an increasingly technology driven world people in poverty have limited access to STEM and financial education resources and opportunities which is widening the gap between the Rich and Poor. Today, Curtis Carmichael shares his life story of how he went from the streets of Toronto to breaking the cycle of poverty after receiving access to the tools of mental wellness, financial literacy, economic empowerment, business ownership and S.T.E.M. Though we live in the same world, we don’t share the same lived experiences as those in poverty. Using a powerful conversational approach, Curtis’s life as a national educator & activist will inspire audiences to find their role to make a difference in the lives of 21st century children & youth living in impoverished communities across Canada and beyond.
