Welcome to the Events and Awards page of CAYE Pacific, where we believe in the power of connection, collaboration and celebration.

We connect our network members with events, conferences and workshops that bring together young entrepreneurs and stakeholders from across the region. These platforms not only offer opportunities for networking and knowledge sharing, but also serve as a stage to recognise and celebrate the remarkable efforts of young entrepreneurs.

Our Vision

At CAYE Pacific, we envision a dynamic entrepreneurial community that is united, inspired and recognised for its contributions to this Commonwealth region’s growth and prosperity. Through the events and awards that we can connect you with, we aim to:

Foster Collaboration
Events can act as a catalyst for collaboration, bringing together young entrepreneurs, mentors, investors, policymakers and industry experts. We believe that fostering a culture of collaboration is essential for driving innovation and addressing the region’s challenges.

Promote Knowledge Sharing
Various workshops and conferences are designed to promote knowledge sharing and skill-building. By learning from experienced professionals and successful entrepreneurs, young business leaders can gain valuable insights that drive their ventures forward.

Provide Networking Opportunities
Networking is an integral part of any entrepreneurial journey. The events we can make you aware of can offer a platform for entrepreneurs to connect with peers, potential partners, investors and mentors, creating lasting relationships that can fuel growth.

Recognise Excellence
We will work to celebrate the exceptional efforts and achievements of young entrepreneurs in our region. Recognising their dedication, resilience, and impact inspires others and contributes to a positive ecosystem for entrepreneurship.


Organised and delivered by the Commonwealth Youth Programme, the Commonwealth Youth Awards for Excellence in Development Work aims to recognise and celebrate young people (aged 15 – 29) in the Commonwealth who are spearheading impactful, sustainable development work in their communities.

The main objectives of the Commonwealth Youth Awards are to:

  • Highlight the contributions young people are making to development work in the Commonwealth, particularly through the Sustainable Development Goals;
  • Create an environment which will encourage and sustain investments in youth-led development;
  • Illustrate the depth and breadth of talent, commitment and creativity that exists among young people across the Commonwealth; and
  • Motivate, encourage and challenge young people to set high standards for their work/service at community, national, regional or international levels.
