Call for Proposals – Engaging Youth
March 14, 2018
OTTAWA: Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, is pleased to inform residents of a call for proposals through the Canada Service Corps.
The call is for projects that benefit young people and allow them to grow on a personal level by building relationships, learning new skills, and creating a lasting impact on the communities they serve.
Specific funding is also available for projects that are focused on reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples. This funding will support project proposals that bring together Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth—allowing them to work together to learn about the process of reconciliation, as well as identify and address social issues in the community.
Eligible organizations include: not-for-profit or for-profit organizations; Indigenous organizations; research institutes; municipalities; and schools. The deadline to apply is April 3, 2018.
“This is an opportunity for local organizations to engage young people and involve them directly in meaningful service opportunities. I encourage all interested organizations to apply,” concluded MP Eglinski.
