Sixteen groups receive funding to support marginalized youth
Please note the table in the Backgrounder has been corrected.
Yukon youth will benefit from more than $68,000 awarded to 16 community groups through the Youth Investment Fund. The groups received funding for a variety of arts, recreation and educational programming, including horse-back riding, cycling and a teen mentoring program.
The Youth Investment Fund provides financial support to short-term projects aimed at youth under 19 years old with fewer opportunities.
The Youth Investment Fund continues to support important opportunities for marginalized youth throughout the territory. I want to thank the community groups for their initiative in offering programs that will create positive social and recreational opportunities for Yukon’s youth, our leaders of tomorrow.
Premier and Minister of the Executive Council Office Sandy Silver
