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.
The Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta is pleased to host the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge, and to make up to $30,000 available to youth-led projects in Northwestern Alberta that will respond to one central question:
What is your boldest idea to respond to an urgent local need?
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 Northwestern Alberta, participating community foundations will make grants and learning opportunities available to youth-led initiatives in 150 communities from coast to coast to coast.
To learn more about eligible projects and how to apply, download the Applicant Guide. Deadline for applications is September 18, 2019.
The RBC Future Launch Community Challenge is made possible thanks to support from the RBC Foundation, and is part of RBC Future Launch, a commitment to empower Canadian youth for the jobs of tomorrow.
