We are proud to once again partner with Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) on the Canada Service Corps, inspiring young people to give back to their communities.
Young Canadians want big things for themselves, their communities, and their country, and we’re here to help. Young people can discover volunteer opportunities with BGC and other youth and community-serving organizations, as well as apply for grants to turn service ideas into reality, all while learning valuable skills and gaining experience.
“Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada will help young Canadians create service projects that address community needs while overcoming barriers and building positive relationships. This experience will empower them to positively impact communities across the country while developing confidence and skills for life.”
– The Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour
The Government of Canada is accepting proposals from youth who want to make their community service ideas a reality. They could secure $250, $750 or $1,500 to make it all happen!
Youth can also search for volunteer opportunities using a new platform that identifies opportunities that match their interests and geographic location.
The Government is also currently accepting proposals from organizations interested in receiving financial assistance from the Canada Service Corps for projects under the Youth Service Opportunities Stream: Local and Regional Scale Projects.
