Encouraging Aboriginal youth to participate in sport
The Aboriginal Youth Sport Legacy Fund supports programs which encourage BC’s Aboriginal youth to participate in physical activity and sport.
Grants for athletes and communities
The Youth Education Assistance Fund (YEAF) provides grants to 19 to 23 year olds attending university, college, a university-college, an institute or designated private school. Grants can be provided for up to four years, with the grant amount varying from year to year. For example, the grant was $5,000 for the 2005/06 school year, increasing to $5,500 for 2006/07.
The family is the cornerstone of our community. When children, youth and their families are supported and strengthened, all aspects of our community benefit both in the short-term and long-term.
