Youth Engagement
Main objective
The objective of the Youth Take Charge Program is to strengthen youth attachment to Canada through engagement in the fields of history and heritage, civic engagement and youth service, arts and culture, and economic activities. The Program provides grants and contributions to eligible organizations in support of youth-led projects involving youth generally aged 7 to 30, which demonstrate the ability to strengthen attachment to Canada while addressing one or more of the above-mentioned thematic areas. It is expected that the Program will increase awareness among youth participants of the importance of being an active and engaged citizen; will increase relevance of youth-serving organizations to youth; and will increase youth engagement in communities. These outcomes will, in the long-term, lead to increased youth attachment to Canada and an increased sense of shared Canadian identity among youth. The Program is also responsible for managing an annual matching grant payment to the Michaëlle Jean Foundation and the Rideau Hall Foundation. This sub-program uses funding from the following transfer payments: Grants in support of the Youth Take Charge Program and Contributions in support of the Youth Take Charge Program.
