Today’s problems need more than yesterday’s solutions. We need bold new thinking to help meet the challenges of the future. The RBC Future Launch Community Challenge is a call to action for youth, and an opportunity to bring young leaders to the decision-making table as we build strong and vibrant communities for the future.

Cambridge and North Dumfries Community Foundation is pleased to host the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge, and to make up to $15,000 available to youth-led projects that address the diverse and urgent local priorities here in the communities of Cambridge and North Dumfries.*

*Note:  Youth from Kitchener, Waterloo, and the surrounding areas of Wellesley, Wilmot, and Woolwich may apply to a similar program available through the  Kitchener Waterloo Community Foundation.

What is your boldest idea to respond to an urgent local need?

Grant recipients will be bringing a project to life in our community, the youth will have opportunities to lead, learn new skills, gain experience, and build relationships – all things that will help prepare them for the future of work.

This Community Challenge goes far beyond Cambridge and North Dumfries, participating community foundations will make grants and learning opportunities with youth-led initiatives in 150 communities from coast to coast.
