Grants of up to $15,000 to Canada qualified organizations partnered with youth for youth-led programs that address critical needs in small and mid-sized communities. The goal of the program is to empower young people, ages 15 to 29, to spearhead projects that focus on community priorities.
The program offers an opportunity for youth to create positive change while also learning new skills, gaining experience, and building relationships across their community — all things that will help them prepare for the future of work. When developing project ideas, applicants are encouraged to experiment with new ideas and to build relationships between community members.
To be considered eligible, youth will lead the creation, design, and/or implementation of the project. As a guide, eligible projects will see the majority of the decisions and activities for each project (60%+) led by youth. Projects may focus on a wide diversity of local priorities, which could include:
- The environment
- Food security
- Reconciliation and restoration
- Other community priorities
Grants from the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge can be used to cover reasonable expenditures to carry out a project, for example:
- Equipment rental;
- Food, transportation, or other logistical costs;
- Purchase of materials necessary for the project (below $2,000 per expense);
- Reasonable salaries, professional fees or other HR costs associated with project activities.
