Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $3,000 to Yukon nonprofit organizations, schools, local public agencies, First Nations and community organizations to engage children and youth in physical activity in the classroom or after school. All proposals must have the support of at least one community partner, such as a First Nation, recreation department, school council or school principal.

Three types of grants help to increase physical activity levels of Yukon children and youth:

1) After School Grants: Up to $3,000 for programs that increase physical activity levels between 3:00 - 6:00 PM. Eligible age groups are school-aged children and youth.

2) Classroom Grants: Up to $500 to increase physical activity levels during the school day and outside of designated PE time. Eligible age groups are school-aged children and youth, as well as pre-schoolers (minimum age is three- years-old).

3) Teen Challenge Grants: Up to $500 to promote and increase physical activity levels of Yukon teens at school and in the community. Eligible age groups include youth aged 13-19.

Two types of Teen Challenge Action Grants aim to increase physical activity at school and in the community while promoting a physically active lifestyle for Yukon teens aged 13-19. You may apply for up to a) $500 for programs that run at least twice per week and include 45-60 minutes of physical activity per session or b) $250 for one-time, special events that introduce inactive youth to a new, lifelong activity.

Applications for programs which meet the following criteria have a higher priority for funding:

-Program increases physical activity levels among those who do not meet activity guidelines by getting more people active, spending more time being active, and providing quality MVPA.

-Program reaches vulnerable populations who are at risk of poor health, inactive, and disadvantaged because of socio-economic status.

-Program encourages lifelong participation in “barrier-free” activities, in extended winter (i.e. Sept-April), and for children and youth before or after school.

-Program involves activities that are scheduled more than once per week and last for 2 months or longer.
