CYM Youth Challenge Funding Application

1st Deadline: March 15th, 2013
2nd Deadline: June 1st, 2013

 Under 35? Get yourself to CYM this summer and be part of the 2013 Youth Challenge!

Last summer, Canadian Young Friends Yearly Meeting received $25,000 to bring together at least 50 Young Friends and Young Adult Friends at CYM 2013. We know that funding can be a major barrier to attending and we’re incredibly excited to be able to help YFs and YAFs come together from across the country in Kemptville, ON this August 16th-24th.

Why two rounds of funding?

The hope is that we can help people plan well in advance or pull their plans together after summer employment plans are confirmed–please apply for the March deadline if you already know what your summer looks like!
