United Way’s Youth United Council grants now open

Stratford Gazette

The Youth United Council, a youth advisory board to the United Way of Perth-Huron, is now accepting applications for funding youth driven projects for up to $1,000 within Perth and Huron counties.

The purpose of the grant is to assist young leaders in addressing issues that are important to them and their community. Projects must have a lead youth applicant (age 14-25) and an adult trustee to assist in the stewardship of funds.

A few of the grant recipients from last year include the Stratford Youth Centre’s “The Truth,” which will create a documentary with the hopes of dispelling the myths about the Youth Centre in the community, “Twice the Meal,” which will provide youth the opportunity to learn about making healthy food choices by taking classes led by chefs and nutritionists, and “Vivace,” which is a program that provides free instrumental and voice lessons to children and youth whose families may not otherwise be able to afford them and to provide sheet music and instrumental rentals as necessary.

To apply, visit www.youthunitedcouncil.ca. Applications open Oct. 29 and close Nov. 19.
