Youth Justice Project

Starting at $10,000 

Our Youth Justice Project enables us to work directly with youth in the justice system, some of Canada’s most at-risk young people and who often struggle to reintegrate back into society.  

The Award across Canada is partnering with various justice-related programs to give young people the opportunity to develop the skills to find success in life and a renewed sense of purpose. An investment in this project allows us to support youth, correctional staff and community workers through the Award framework. It also funds activity costs for young people.  

Please contact us at to discuss how you can make an impact through the Youth Justice Project.

Adventurous Journey Project

Starting at $20,000 

The Adventurous Journey is one of the biggest barriers young people face when striving to achieve their Award. Many young people across Canada do not have the funds or equipment to venture into the great outdoors. This project enables us to fully subsidize the costs for young people so they can complete their Award, but more importantly develop core skills such as teamwork, leadership and resilience, cultivated by undertaking a challenging journey that encourages a deeper environmental awareness.

Please contact us at to discuss how you can make an impact through the Adventurous Journey Project.

Digital Expansion Project

Starting at $20,000

 COVID-19 has illustrated the disparity faced by many young people with regards to digital connectivity. An investment in our Digital Expansion Project will help increase the reach of the Award to rural and remote communities across Canada. Funds ensure young people can access our digital platform and resources, as well as provide them access to an Award Leader who helps guide and mentor them through their Award. As a result of COVID-19 we have begun to establish Virtual Award Centres, so young people who once did the Award in person via community centres, schools and youth groups can continue engaging and completing the Award, ensuring that during this difficult time, no young person is left behind. 
Please contact us at to discuss how you can make an impact through the Digital Expansion Project.
