The RBC Future Launch Community Challenge is a national effort to support youth leadership and tackle urgent local needs. The Challenge provides grants to youth-led projects, and supports Vital Conversations that bring youth and other community members together to discuss the future of their communities. Vital Conversations can increase community engagement, connect local organizations and resources, and build new relationships.
Here are excerpts from some Vital Conversations held online for some of the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge 2021 projects:
- Happiness Project, New Glasgow NS
- Connect Music, Tiddville NS
- Youth to Youth, New Minas NS
- Nova Action, Mahone Bay NS
- Shubenacadie Wetland, Shubenacadie NS
- Down to Earth, Tatamagouche NS
The RBC Future Launch Community Challenge is supported by a collaboration between Rural Communities Foundation of Nova Scotia, Community Foundations of Canada, RBC and Leith Wheeler Investment Counsel Ltd.
