A youth-based program in Rossland has received $15,000 from the Columbia Basin Trust for a celebration of youth.

The City of Rossland’s Youth Action Network will host activities and programming that lead up to a week-long celebration of youth in May 2014.

In all, 15 projects for youth will benefit from funding through Columbia Basin Trust’s Youth Grants Program. The projects will receive a total of $107,400.

“Applicants submitted a diverse range of project ideas to the program,” said Sabrina Curtis, director, Sector Initiatives for the Trust. “We are excited that all of the funded projects will strongly support meaningful engagement of Basin youth.”

Projects that directly benefit Basin youth aged 12 to 29 can receive up to $15,000 per project through the Youth Grants Program.

A range of organizations can apply including school districts, First Nations and local governments, plus youth aged 15 to 29 with a sponsoring organization.

The Trust’s Youth Advisory Committee, made up of youth aged 15 to 29, adjudicate the applications.

The next Youth Grants Program deadline is March 10 at 2 p.m. For more information, visit www.cbt.org/ygp.
