The Honourable Paul Pike, Minister of Children, Seniors and Social Development, is today announcing a call for applications for the 2024-25 Grants to Youth Organizations.

Through Budget 2024, the Provincial Government allocated $276,500 for Grants to Youth Organizations which support youth-serving organizations to create opportunities and promote mentorship, inclusion and well-being of youth in Newfoundland and Labrador.

This program supports projects that:

  • Encourage skills, knowledge and/or leadership development.
  • Support youth in contributing to their community, region and/or province.
  • Promote or support partnerships, collaboration, and inclusion.
  • Fill a gap in services.
  • Provide opportunities for innovative intergenerational activities that help build relationships between generations.

More information on the Grants to Youth Organizations, including the application form, can be found here or by emailing CSSDGrantPrograms@gov.nl.ca. The deadline for applications is June 21, 2024.

In 2023-24, a total of 31 youth-serving organizations operating in Newfoundland and Labrador received project funding. A list of these recipients can be found in the backgrounder below.

Quotes
“The Grants to Youth Organizations open up great opportunities for youth to build leadership, community engagement and contribute to a vibrant and inclusive province. I am thankful for the work of youth-serving community partners and encourage organizations to learn more about this grant program and to apply by the deadline.”
Honourable Paul Pike
Minister of Children, Seniors and Social Development

“Grants to Youth Organizations allowed our community centre to offer a youth leadership program this year, with 45 teens participating. They had a chance to learn valuable leadership skills, work as a team, and volunteer in the community. Thanks to Grants to Youth Organizations, and our community partners, these young people were able to experience opportunities that are already opening doors for them.”
