Become a leader in your community!
Featured Event: TU20 Cup
The TU20 Cup is an entrepreneurship competition we’ve been hosting yearly for 3 years now. Students in teams of 2-6 compete to create the best pitch and business plan for a prototype they develop for the year’s theme.
This year’s theme is The Next Generation. Along with our sponsor, the Oakville Community Foundation, we will be giving $15,000 to the team that designs and pitches the best product to help resolve issues affecting youth in Oakville. The money will be used over the summer to turn their idea into an actual product for a local charity!
Registration ends on January 11th, so get a team and sign up before you miss out!

Need help on your path to post-secondary?
“How can I make my university application better?”
If you’re in grade 12, you’ll probably ask yourself this question several times. TU20 has the answer: community involvement. So, how do you get involved?
We host several competitions in tech, business, and entrepreneurship that you can attend in order to show proof of your passion and dedication to your interests. You can also come to our workshops and school chapters throughout the year to learn skills like marketing yourself, designing a website, coding and more. Some of our members have gone to well-renown programs, such as Mechatronics & Software Engineering at Waterloo, Computer Science & Computer Engineering at U of T and more!

“What’s university life like? How much is the workload? How do I know which university to apply to? How do I know which program to study?”
At our University Guidance series, we answer all these questions and more, courtesy of people currently in university. We’ve had students from U of T, Western and Waterloo join us to talk about their experience and answer any questions you might have. See when we’ll be running our series next here.

Our members have worked in some of Canada’s and the US’s top companies!
Knowing people in the industry is key to starting your career of choice. Whether it be getting a summer job, doing co-op in university, or after finishing post-secondary, networking is your most powerful tool in getting employed where you want to.
We always make sure to invite experts from the industry in order to give you the chance to meet and connect with people in the fields you’re interested in. After all, it’s not about what you know, but who you know that’s important
We like to think that it’s never too early to start following your passion and developing your interests. So of course we make sure those opportunities are available.
Have an innovative idea but don’t know how to make it a reality? You’re not alone. See how young students turned their creative solutions into finished projects over the summer in our TU20 Fellowships program.
Can’t wait to start your dream job? Why wait? If you’ve got the skills, then come to our Learn 2 Get Hired event in May. We’ll teach you how to market yourself and stand out to employers, then connect you with startups in Halton looking to hire young students over the summer.
