Bold youth-led initiatives address local needs as Community Foundation
What is your boldest idea to respond to an urgent local need?
The Community Foundation of PEI is joining the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge, making up to $30,000 available to youth-led projects that address diverse and urgent local priorities in Prince Edward Island.
The RBC Future Launch Community Challenge will enable youth (ages 15-29) to apply for funding to support their bold ideas to address urgent community priorities. It is an opportunity for young people to lead, learn new skills, gain experience, and build relationships in their local communities — all things that will help them prepare for the future of work. Later this year, the Community Foundation of PEI will also bring youth and community members together for ‘Vital Conversations,’ community dialogue focused on creating a better future together.
This Community Challenge goes far beyond Prince Edward Island. In fact, participating community foundations will make grants and learning opportunities available to youth-led initiatives in 150 communities from coast to coast to coast. As a whole, the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge aims to empower Canadian youth for the jobs and community realities of the future.
Grant applications will be accepted now through September 18, 2019.
