Youth 4 Action Grant
Are you 14-24 years old and looking for a great way to teach your peers about trending health topics and showcase your leadership skills? Youth 4 Action is for you!
This $300 Youth 4 Action Grant is awarded to high school, post-secondary and community-based youth groups in Ontario, between the ages of 14-24. You will be required to use your skills and creativity to carry out prevention, advocacy, and fundraising activities in your communities amongst your peers.
What to expect
As Youth 4 Action leaders, your team will receive online training, guidance, and topic specific resources to support your project. A toolkit of ideas with swag is sent to each grant recipient to help the group be successful.
Groups select one of the three topics to be the focus of their cancer prevention initiative:
- Big Tobacco Lies: Join a movement of youth determined to expose the deceitful and manipulative ways that the tobacco industry markets their products to youth.
- Rethink Sugary Drinks: Educate your peers about sugary drinks and choosing healthy beverages while also learning more about the marketing tactics the food industry uses to make sugary drinks more attractive to youth
- Get Active, Stay Active!: Set up opportunities for youth to experience how being active is fun while learning about the positive benefits of regular physical activity on preventing cancer.
