Grant Review Committee

The Youth Opportunities Fund (YOF) is seeking new volunteers for the Grant Review Committee that reviews applications across Youth, Family and Systems Innovation streams.  They are looking for volunteers with diverse perspectives and experiences, including those who self-identify as a member of the Black, First Nation, Métis or Inuit or other racialized communities. Young leaders, elders and parents, guardians, and caregivers with lived experiences are encouraged to join the committee and support these grassroots-led initiatives.

 

Greetings | Aanii | She:kon | Bonjour,

 

The Youth Opportunities Fund (YOF) is recruiting volunteers to be part of our Grant Review Committee!

Are you:

Interested in making an impact in your community?
Passionate about supporting grassroots leaders and initiatives?
Members of the Grant Review Committee (GRC) assess grant applications and provide recommendations on high-impact projects that align with YOF requirements for project funding.

YOF is particularly interested in candidates from beyond the Greater Toronto and Hamilton areas. Acknowledging that lived experience can offer an informed lens on the needs and strengths of communities, the YOF would like to extend a special invitation to community members who live with disabilities or special needs or who have experience with:

child and youth welfare,
youth justice,
and/or barriers to education.
We welcome volunteers with diverse perspectives and experiences, including those who self-identify as a member of the Black, First Nation, Métis or Inuit or other racialized communities. We encourage young leaders, elders and parents, guardians, and caregivers with lived experiences to join the committee and support grassroots-led initiatives. Former YOF grantees are welcome to apply. Current grantees cannot be members of the GRC.
