Description

The Youth Engaging Youth project was launched after the Ukrainian Canadian Congress received approval for financial support from the Canadian Government’s Department of Heritage Canada 150 Fund to celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary, and is open for ALL groups to apply (ethnic communities, LGBTQ, international students etc.). Basically, we're looking for existing events you want to get additional resources on, or "fresh" ideas you're ready to make a reality. There will be around 10 events in total across the province. First nations community is highly encouraged to apply and to be included into other events.

Youth Engaging Youth’s focus aligns with the Canadian Government’s priorities for Canada 150 celebration:
- Celebrating youth diversity, inclusion, and the building of common interests and relationships;
- Supporting youth efforts towards reconciliation of Indigenous and non-indigenous Canadians;
- Engaging and inspiring youth to carry forward the legacy of Canada 150;
- Connecting young Canadians with nature and raising environmental stewardship to local and regional consciousness.

In addition to financial support, we can provide the following:
- Marketing & Promotion;
- Travel;
- Materials (tape, hammers...whatever you need);
- Advertising;
- Equipment rental;
- Venue Rental;
- Hospitality. ***
