Youth are the best agents of change but have been continuously (and frustratingly) under-resourced and under-supported. We are here to change that by providing meaningful core-capacity support to ensure that youth can start, sustain, and scale their projects to new heights!

At The Harbour, we seek to offer three pillars of support:

1. Financial
2. Skills
3. Networking

Financial Support
The funding opportunities for youth are often provided in insufficient amounts or require lengthy application processes. As a result, youth are often chasing and applying for funding that won’t fulfill their financial needs.
At The Harbour we aim to reduce the barriers to grant approval and funding opportunities. Our strategy is to use an accessible, youth-centered application model that provides core-capacity and/or multi-year grants that actually allow youth to make a meaningful impact.
You can find out more about each of these tiers here in our application page.

Skills Support
We also know that you can’t just give money to an organization or project and expect everything to work out. That’s why at The Harbour we want to provide support to enhance your skills and capabilities and ensure that you can keep moving forward.
This means that we’re exploring ways to resource youth through professional services too, to ensure that they’re focused on the mission, not the burdensome administrative tasks. And if they want to learn about the burdensome administrative tasks, they can learn quickly on how to execute said tasks.
With youth at the centre, we engage with partners and allies in the sector to design pathways to uplift and amplify your work. If you have an idea about how to make your life easier, let us know.

Networking Support
Since youth generally come into the climate sector without the network but are time-bound, often they are unable to make the connections at the speed that their work requires. To break these barriers, The Harbour is committed to making the connections that we can, bridging those with institutional knowledge to our young leaders, and offering spaces for conversation and collaboration.
We believe that we are stronger together when it comes to taking climate action.
