Youth In Action Round 2

November 10, 2022 / by United Way

Support Young Changemakers

How would you use 500 dollars to change your community positively? That is the question we ask the youth in the Sooke-Westshore region. Last fall, United Way Southern Vancouver Island launched Round 1 and successfully funded 11 projects the region’s youth put forward between the ages of 11 and 16.

Round 2 in on

This year partnering with the Village Initiative, the Youth in Action initiative is back again with Round 2 to see which ideas can be brought into reality. UWSVI believes that youth voices should be heard and amplified, and youth should be given the tools to make their community a better place to live. The grants are made possible through generous donations and sponsorships from local businesses in the Capital Regional District.

The deadline is on Monday, January 30th, 2023. If you want to apply or learn more about Youth In Action, click here.
