National Bank is proud to launch the 3rd edition of its One for Youth Regional Committees program. This year’s focus will be on projects that develop entrepreneurial spirit.
One for Youth regional committees
Until November 6, not for profit organizations and elementary and high schools across Canada are invited to submit projects that will encourage young people to develop their entrepreneurial spirit: conferences, mentoring programs, competitions, etc. Each recipient could receive up to $15,000 in financial support.
Once the application period closes, the projects will be evaluated by 12 One for Youth Regional Committees, consisting of National Bank’s local managers and key community stakeholders.
National Bank invests $1 million to support entrepreneurial spirit
In total, an additional $1 million will be invested to support entrepreneurial spirit and help tomorrow’s adults reach their full potential. This amount is in addition to the $12 million the bank has earmarked for youth in the past five years.
Since the program’s first edition, 279 organizations across Canada have been able to carry out inspiring initiatives and reach more than 76,000 young people, who have gained confidence, pride and self-esteem.
Good to know
Applications must be submitted using the online form by no later than 5 p.m. on November 6, 2015.
