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 most recent BC Adolescent Health Survey (BC AHS) the opportunity to deliver a project to improve youth health in their school or community.

YAGs fund projects which are:

  • Youth-led
  • Focused on one or more of the key findings from the 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.)
