Youth 4 Action Grant
After four successful years, Ontario’s Youth 4 Action program is closing. This means that there will be no grants offered this fall (2018).
Since 2014, 156 high school, post-secondary and community-based youth groups from across Ontario have implemented prevention, advocacy and fundraising campaigns to educate their peers about reducing cancer risk and adopting healthier lifestyles. 70,032 youth aged 14-24 years have participated in or been reached through these initiatives.
We will be looking for other ways to engage young people in the fight against cancer like the Relay for Life Youth program. Read more
