We are excited to announce that alongside the RBC Foundation, we are supporting 210 youth-led initiatives in small and mid-sized communities across Canada through the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge.
Through the Challenge, nearly 500 youth are taking on leadership roles in addressing issues that matter to their communities. Over 50,000 youth are expected to participate in the projects, and it’s anticipated that nearly 100,000 more community volunteers will be lending their support.
The projects cover a wide range of topics, from education and health to food security, inclusion and reconciliation. Over 37% of the projects are led by Indigenous people, and 50% of all projects will primarily benefit Indigenous people. 82% of projects address health and well-being, and 55% address environmental issues or climate action.
