Bold youth-led initiatives address local needs as Carberry & Area Community Foundation joins national community challenge
Carberry & Area Community Foundation is joining the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge, making up to $15,000 available to youth-led projects that address diverse and urgent local priorities.
“This is incredibly exciting,” says Brianna Renwick, CACF Executive Director. “Youth are facing pressures on many fronts, and so are our communities. We want our youth to be part of creative solutions that enhance equity, sustainability and fairness that help lay the groundwork for a brighter future.”
The RBC Future Launch Community Challenge will enable youth to apply for funding to support their bold ideas to address urgent community priorities. It is an opportunity for young people to lead, learn new skills, gain experience, and build relationships in their local communities -- all things that will help them prepare for the future of work. Later this year, Carberry & Area Community Foundation will also bring youth and community members together for ‘Vital Conversations,’ community dialogue focused on creating a better future together.
This Community Challenge goes far beyond Carberry and Area. Participating community foundations will make grants and learning opportunities available to youth-led initiatives in 150 communities from coast to coast to coast. As a whole, the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge aims to empower Canadian youth for the jobs and community realities of the future.
“RBC believes strongly in the power, vision and potential of youth, and the influence they can have in their communities,” said Mark Beckles, senior director, Youth Strategy and Innovation, RBC. “That’s why we are thrilled to partner with the Community Foundations of Canada to help young people make a difference in communities across Canada while building the 21st century skills needed to prepare for the future of work."

Carberry & Area Community Foundation and RBC Foundation Announce Grant of $15,000 to Local Youth Group
Carberry & Area Community Foundation and RBC Foundation are providing a grant of $15,000 to support an inclusive celebration in our community! The official announcement will be made on Friday, November 15, 2019 at 7:00PM at Links on Main.
“It’s so exciting to get the support to help bring our entire community together to unite in celebration. Our group is looking forward to seeing our ideas come to fruition. Thank you, Carberry & Area Community Foundation and RBC Foundation, for recognizing the impact young leaders can make,” says Matthew Salyn, youth leader from Carberry Collegiate.
As a part of the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge, grants like this one are being made to youth-led projects in 150 small and medium sized communities across Canada. The goal of the program is to shift the power to young leaders making positive social or environmental change in their communities, while gaining valuable skills and experience.
“Young people are not future leaders — they are leading social and environmental change right now. We are honoured to play a role in the bold change that youth are leading across the country through this national initiative with RBC,” says Andrew Chunilall, CEO of Community Foundations of Canada.
The event features remarks by a representative from RBC, and an opportunity to hear about the new youth-led project. Following this presentation, attendees are invited to take part in a World Café-style Vital Conversation. The evening will close with presentations to all of Carberry & Area Community Foundation’s 2019 grant recipients. Refreshments will be provided to all in attendance.
“RBC is committed to the power, vision and potential of youth, and the important role they play in their communities,” says Richard Rapisarda, RBC Community Manager. “We are thrilled to see the results of this important partnership with the CFC helping make a difference in communities across Canada.”
The Carberry and Area Community Foundation aims to preserve and enhance the quality of life in Carberry & Area, providing grants and scholarships to worthy recipients. Participating in the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge builds on the community foundation’s long-time support to local youth and youth leadership.
The RBC Future Launch Community Challenge is hosted by Community Foundations of Canada and participating community foundations, and is made possible thanks to a $5M donation from RBC Foundation. It is part of RBC Future Launch, a commitment by RBC and the RBC Foundation to empower Canadian youth for the jobs of tomorrow. Over the next 10 years, RBC Future Launch is dedicating $500 million to help young people access meaningful employment through practical work experience, skills development opportunities, networking solutions and mental well-being supports and services.
