RBC Future Launch Community Challenge
Today’s problems need more than yesterday’s solutions. We need bold new thinking to help meet the challenges of the future. We need young voices at the decision-making table to help build strong and vibrant communities.
The challenge is a call to action for youth, aged 15 – 29, in more than 150 small and mid-sized communities across Canada. The Deep River and District Community Foundation is pleased to host the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge, and to make up to $15,000 available to youth-led projects in the Deep River and District area that will respond to one central question:
What is your boldest idea to respond to an urgent local need?
