Youth Action Grants

Youth Action Grants

​​Toronto Community Housing invests in strategies that engage youth in positive activities that lead to personal growth and community development in the areas of safety, leadership engagement, rec​​reation, and economic development.​

​The Youth Action Grants were created in 2013 to recognize and support the innovative ideas youth have to improve their communities. Funds are available to support youth-led initiatives such as summer camps, community events, workshops and training. Applicants are eligible to receive up to $2,500 in funding to support their project.

The Youth Action Grants program connects youth across the city to services and programs. The program focuses on a number of areas including active living, art and social innovation.
