Together, we are building a program to increase youth involvement through community service. Created for youth, by youth. The program length is 2 years until March 2020.
What are the criteria to apply for the funding?
The funding program is available to Canadian citizens, permanent residents or people who have been granted refugee status in Canada.
In the context of the program, "Youth" refers to individuals who are 15-30 years old during the year of their participation in the program. Please see our application checklist for full criteria.
If you are applying for the $1500 grant, you'll be required to have a community reference or mentor, like a teacher or a member of a local organization to support your project.
