Youth Empowerment Program

Money To Make Your Ideas Happen

Edmonton Community Foundation (ECF) has money dedicated to funding youth projects. If you know a group of 13 to 22 year olds who have an idea or a project they would like to get started tell them to apply. The Youth Empowerment Program (YEP) supports activities that are initiated, led and organized by Edmonton and area youth.

Activities can be strictly for fun, or socially responsible, but ECF can only grant the money to a charity. Make sure you have a registered charity, or school, involved in order to apply. Read more about Youth Empowerment Program
