Announcing The Youth Harbour Cycle 2 grantees!
The Youth Harbour is excited to announce that the second cycle of funding selections has been completed! It has been an exciting time collaborating with the projects from our first cycle and following their progress in each of their youth-led missions to tackle the climate crisis. We are excited to be working with so many new ambitious young people as we move into our second cycle of funding.
The number of remarkable applications made this a difficult choice for allocation of our funding. It is clear simply from the overwhelming number of applicants that there is a high demand for youth-led climate action to be recognized, funded, and supported.
The following applicants were selected as the most favourable based on a multitude of criteria and were thus selected for the second cycle of granting from the Youth Harbour.
A list of the successful applicants in alphabetical order can be found below:
- Atelier de vélo Communautaire de l’Université du Québec à Chicoutimi
- Banking on a Better Future
- Many Green Hands
- Mino Bimaadiziwin Collective’s Leaders of Tomorrow Initiative
- Pitch It Green
- Project Sculptshore
- Reimagine Agriculture
The Youth Harbour is looking forward to working with each of these teams as we make progress toward the completion of each of their objectives and missions. As part of our commitment to contributing to building a more sustainable, just, and prosperous future for generations to come, we will continue to share resources with all of the youth organizations that submitted applications. We would like to recognize the time, energy, and commitment of all of those who applied. Organizations that were not successful in being selected for funding in this cycle were offered a $50 compensation for their efforts, as we maintain the belief that young people deserve to be paid for their work.
The Youth Harbour is a project of the Foundation for Environmental Stewardship that offers support to youths who are taking action against the climate crisis. The Youth Harbour offers grants of varying amounts to meet the needs of projects that fall under three themes: climate justice, amplifying youth voices, and climate innovation.
