Youth Leadership for Change

Youth Leadership For Change is a project that aims to build a culture of service and volunteering among racialized youth in Ottawa aged 18-30, with activities that strengthen youth resilience, build an inclusive Canada and promote civic engagement.
The Canada Service Corps (CSC) through the Social Planning Council of Ottawa (SPCO) will provide funding to youth, in the form of micro-grants, to take ownership of an issue that is important to them, propose a solution, and implement it at the local community level, while developing their leadership, budgeting and planning skills.

Apply today for microgrants of up to $5,000 for your project.

Youth Leadership For Change is funded by Canada Service Corps, a national movement that empowers youth aged 18–30 to gain experience and build important skills while giving back to their community.
