About us

Illuminate is Parent Approved.

Here's why parents love Illuminate, and you should too!

“My daughter attended Illuminate throughout her high school years. She gained strong leadership skills and was able to apply them to her workforce and extracurriculars in both high school and university. Her connections to Illuminate have opened up many doors for great opportunities such as developing her own startup business, and being a leader in orchestral ensembles. Because of Illuminate, she has the skills and drive to go on and do great things in her future.

Illuminate Universe helped my son reinforce his leadership capabilities, teaching him how to build strong connections with industry professionals and like-minded individuals. The staff at Illuminate provided my son with the right resources and mentoring for him to successfully lead his very own Illuminate x Markham business conference.



Through the Illuminate Universe regional lead program, Erin has gained many new skills and experiences that will be useful in the future. As a result of the guidance provided by the national leads and Alina, she was able to receive admission acceptance to business schools such as Queen's Commerce and Western Ivey AEO. She even received a consulting internship this summer. Extremely grateful for Illuminate!

Within the events from the Illuminate, I was amazed by how much my son changed to become well rounded as a leader. The mentors are exceptional. The students are professional, mature, courteous, friendly and they enjoy being a part of this exciting program. I highly recommend Illuminate to the high school students who have interests in business, entrepreneurship and innovation.



My child has gained experience and knowledge she would have never gained within the walls of a classroom - it has opened her mind and taught her valuable skills. The program has allowed her to apply her knowledge and gain practical experience. She's been able to network immensely and express her creativity freely, I really love to see her enjoy herself and accomplish great things on such a large scale with the help of an inclusive and quality environment at Illuminate Universe.



My daughter has been looking for ways to improve her leadership and communication skills. With this experience, I’ve noticed that my once shy child has started leading clubs and extra-curricular activities on her own account. I am impressed of how much her knowledge of the business world and her character has grown.
