The mission of the Young Citizens Foundation is to assist young Canadians to grow and mature as committed, knowledgeable and contributing Canadian citizens. The Foundation achieves this objective by encouraging young Canadians to participate in development programs operated by nationally recognized organizations such as Rotary’s Adventure in Citizenship, that provide life-learning opportunities for our youth which will significantly influence and benefit their development as committed Canadian citizens. Participation in these organizations develops leadership skills, exposes students to the various citizenship ideals that the country values and provides some very positive mentoring.
The provision of post-secondary scholarships will enable these students to continue their education so that they can achieve positions of leadership in their communities, regionally and nationally. The Foundation also wants to provide an opportunity for those individuals, corporations and organizations that wish to assist the Foundation in this worthwhile endeavor to donate to a well-managed, cost-effective, non-profit charitable foundation.
The Young Citizens Foundation provide several deserving participants in the Adventure With Citizenship program a $1,000.00 scholarship for first year tuition.
