RBC Future Launch Community Challenge
Bold youth-led initiatives address local needs as Centre Wellington Community Foundation joins national community challenge
Centre Wellington Community Foundation is joining the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge to make up to $15,000 available to youth-led projects in Centre Wellington that will respond to one central question:
What is your boldest idea to respond to an urgent local need?
Today’s problems need more than yesterday’s solutions. We need bold new thinking to help meet the challenges of the future. The RBC Future Launch Community Challenge is a call to action for youth, and an opportunity to bring young leaders to the decision-making table as we build strong and vibrant communities for the future.
We are excited to see what youth (15-29) come up with as solutions to our urgent local needs and for us to be able to put some funding toward their ideas. “Raymond Soucy, Executive Director at Centre Wellington Community Foundation
By applying for a grant and bringing a local project to life, youth will have opportunities 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. This Community Challenge goes far beyond Centre Wellington, participating community foundations will make grants and learning opportunities available to youth-led initiatives in 150 communities from coast to coast to coast.
