PAVED Arts is proud to partner with Taking It Global in their #RisingYouth campaign that provides an expansive and accessible Community Grant Service for Youth.
As a partner, our staff are committed to providing mentor support and guidance to all youth in Saskatchewan who would like to learn more and become the next #RisingYouth in our community.
What is #RisingYouth?
#RisingYouth is a program led by TakingITGlobal to help youth build Canada and develop life skills by giving back to their communities. Created for youth by youth, we are building a program to increase involvement through community service. The program is currently funded to offer grants through March 2021. Our program is funded by the Government of Canada under the Canada Service Corps initiative.
In other words, #RisingYouth is an opportunity for youth aged 15-30 to receive financial and mentor support to carry out their own ideas for community development. If you have an idea about how you can contribute positively to your community, this grant is for you!
Some examples of eligible projects are:
- An anti-racist, climate justice, or other educational event
- An initiative in response to Covid-19
- Purchase and distribution of food hampers or electronic devices to those in need
- Outdoor education course
- A creative artistic project
- YOUR Idea!
If you, or someone you know, is interested in providing a service to your community, please get in touch with us at PAVED Arts and we would be happy to help see your initiative come to life through mentorship and financial support.
