• RBC Future Launch Community Challenge

    June 4, 2019

    RBC-FutureLaunch-Shareable2-TwitterToday’s problems need more than yesterday’s solutions. We need bold new thinking to help meet the challenges of the future. The RBC Future Launch Community Challenge is a call to action for youth, and an opportunity to bring young leaders to the decision-making table as we build strong and vibrant communities for the future.

    The Altona Community Foundation is pleased to host the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge, and to make up to $15,000 available to youth-led projects in Altona and the Municipality of Rhineland that will respond to one central question:

    What is your boldest idea to respond to an urgent local need?
    By applying for a grant and bringing a local project to life, youth will have opportunities 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. This Community Challenge goes far beyond Altona, participating community foundations will make grants and learning opportunities available to youth-led initiatives in 150 communities from coast to coast to coast.
