2.  General Fall Granting – opens August 19, 2019

Today’s problems need more than yesterday’s solutions. We need bold new thinking to help meet the challenges of the future. The RBC Future Launch Community Challenge is a call to action for youth, and an opportunity to bring young leaders to the decision-making table as we build strong and vibrant communities for the future.

Oxford Community Foundation is pleased to host the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge to make funding available to youth-led projects in small neighbouring communities that will respond to one central question:

What is your boldest idea to respond to an urgent local need?

By applying for a grant and bringing a local project to life, youth will have opportunities to lead, learn new skills, gain experience, and build relationships in their local communities – all things that will help them prepare for the future of work. This community challenge goes far beyond Oxford Community Foundation, participating community foundations will make grants and learning opportunities available to youth-led initiatives in 150 communities from coast to coast to coast.

To learn more about eligible projects and how to apply, download the Applicant Guide.

The RBC Future Launch Community Challenge is made possible thanks to support from the RBC Foundation, and is part of RBC Future Launch, a commitment to empower Canadian youth for the jobs of tomorrow.
