Youth Philanthropy Council- $Green Grants$

Are you a young person with a great idea about how to GREEN your school, community or neighborhood? YPC will give out grants for youth-run environmental projects, with a special focus on local food. Examples include growing and sharing food; ensuring equitable access to safe and healthy food or reducing energy consumption during food production. This YPC initiative looks to build on the success of last year’s Generation Green Awards and help meet Vancouver’s Greenest City goals.

This year,  grants will amount to more than $200,000 to youth led projects!  Grants will range from $1,000 — $10,000.
