Youth Action Grants

Youth Action Grants

The Youth Action Grants (YAG) were created by McCreary’s Youth Advisory & Action Council (YAC). The purpose of the YAGs is to provide BC youth (ages 12–19) from school districts that participated in the 2018 BC Adolescent Health Survey the opportunity to deliver a project to improve youth health in their school or community.

The 2019 granting cycle is now open.

YAGs fund projects which are:

  • Youth-led
  • Focused on one or more of the key findings from the 2018 BC AHS.
  • Benefitting youth in your school or community.
  • Supported by at least one adult (such as a teacher, counsellor, youth worker, adult mentor, etc.)

Application Process

Step one: Tell us about your project by filling out an application form here.

Step two: Send us your completed application form by email or mail.

Step three: The YAG Committee (members from McCreary’s YAC and adult supports) will review your application and let you know if it has been successful within 4 weeks of receiving it.

If you have any questions about your project idea, the application process, or would like help preparing your grant application, email yag@mcs.bc.ca or call us at 604-291-1996.
