We are youth helping youth helping youth. As a volunteer committee of Vancouver Foundation, we mix knowledge, networks and philanthropy —(the giving of time, talent and money). Our goals are to ensure youth play a meaningful role in creating Vancouver ‘hoods, schools and communities that are better places and spaces for youth.
We offer grants to empower young people in Vancouver to take action on issues they care about. We support programs that: encourage youth growth; promote youth voice; and increase opportunities for youth participation throughout Vancouver.
Generation Green Grants
Are you a young person with a great idea about how to GREEN your school, community or neighbourhood? We’re looking for cool ideas from youth-led organizations; ideas that will make your neighbourhood greener and help meet Vancouver’s Greenest City goals.
We know youth have great ideas! Ideas that can create positive change in the community. We also know it’s hard to find the resources to help get your idea off the ground. If you need just a couple of hundred dollars to make it happen, check out our Mini Grants program.
