Today’s problems need more than yesterday’s solutions. We need bold new thinking to help meet the challenges of the future. We need young voices at the decision-making table to help build strong and vibrant communities.
-From the Community Foundations of Canada overview on the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge
The RBC Future Launch Community Challenge focuses on the question of, "What is your boldest to respond to an urgent local need?" Youth, aged 15-29, in more than 150 small and mid-sized communities across Canada have the opportunity to team up, apply for a grant of up to $15,000 to get them started on making their ideas a reality.
