The Young Citizens Foundation supports nationally recognized citizenship development programs by:
1. promoting participation in those programs;
2. offering scholarships to selected participants; and,
3. offering financial assistance to qualifying students.
Please note that The Young Citizens Foundation is an independent public foundation that is not legally associated with the programs that it is helping to support. We are not members of the societies that oversee these programs; are not members of their boards of directors; and, play no part in the formation of their operational policies.
What is our motivation? – The Young Citizens Foundation and its Board of Directors understand that Canada’s future depends upon developing Canada’s youth into knowledgeable and committed leaders who have a passion for the values that Canadian citizenship training develops. It is in Canada’s interest that we encourage students to participate in such programs.
