Youth Empowerment Program

February 15, 2011

The Youth Empowerment Program (YEP) is a new initiative of the Edmonton Community Foundation.  This program is made possible through a financial gift from a generous donor and will support activities that are initiated, led, and organized by Edmonton youth.

The activities that can be supported through the program are wide ranging - from organizing a local street dance to initiating a career fair or hosting workshops on topics like bullying, self-defence, or civic engagement.  Youth groups are welcome to be creative and to apply with any idea within the parameters discussed in the accompanying information.

Edmonton Community Foundation has convened a youth advisory committee to review applications and recommend projects for funding.
