Ontario Investing in New Opportunities for Children and Youth

Published on July 14, 2021

The government is investing more than $13 million in the Youth Opportunities Fund, a province-wide initiative that provides grants and capacity-building supports to local, community-driven and youth-led projects.


Grassroots and community-based organizations know what supports are needed most in their neighbourhoods, and we are supporting them in creating positive change in their communities.


Grantees will operate programs that help build the skills young people need to stay engaged in school, build strong and healthy relationships and navigate resources in their community.


This year we are supporting 36 incredible community projects that will help youth across the province overcome barriers and access new opportunities.


We are excited to see what this year’s grantees will accomplish. 


This investment in the future of our province, our youth, will help them overcome barriers and reach their goals: https://news.ontario.ca/en/release/1000514/ontario-investing-in-new-opportunities-for-children-and-youth
