Just over $107,000 is available to fund projects that make a positive difference for Basin youth aged 12 to 29 in the upcoming Youth Grants Program (YGP) intake. Organizations, school districts, First Nations organizations and local governments—plus youth aged 15 to 29 with a sponsoring organization—can apply for up to $15,000 per project.

“CBT strives to take an active role in helping communities create opportunities for young people in the Basin,” said Aimee Ambrosone, CBT Senior Manager, Sector Initiatives. “Projects that receive Youth Grants funding benefit Basin youth in diverse ways.”

CBT’s Youth Advisory Committee, made up of youth aged 15 to 29 from around the Basin, adjudicates the YGP applications. The upcoming YGP deadline is Oct. 7, 2013, at 2 p.m.

Program adjudicators are especially interested in projects that support youth engagement, leadership or employment and entrepreneurship.

The next YGP intake will be spring 2014. For more information, visit www.cbt.org/ygp.
