Over $77,000 has been awarded to 18 community groups through the Youth Investment Fund. The groups received funding for a variety of arts and recreation programming aimed to provide youth with valuable experiences and learning opportunities. Programming includes a girls running club, a recreation employment program, a theatre program, music programs and a biking club.
The Youth Investment Fund provides financial support to short-term projects aimed at youth under 19 years of age with fewer opportunities and those who may experience discrimination.
The Youth Investment Fund is helping provide Yukon youth with experiences and opportunities that will help them build lifelong skills and lasting friendships in a healthy environment. It is important that we continue to provide all youth in our territory with avenues to grow and learn, and I thank these dedicated organizations for their work to support Yukon youth.
