Applications for 2019-2020 Leadership Fund are now open!
Everything we do at BYTE is about creating spaces for Northern youth to lead. We want youth to have the strengths and skills they need to lead happy, healthy and meaningful lives and to be heard in their communities. With this goal in mind, we are launching the BYTE Youth Leadership Fund to celebrate our 20th Anniversary in 2018. For 20 wonderful years we have had the honour of working with and investing in young people in the North, and we are excited to continue to do so with this fund! Our goal is to use the fund to connect youth aged 14-25 to experiences and resources to help develop their passions, gifts and identity.
Applicants are eligible to apply for transportation (ex. airfare to and from a conference/event), accommodation, per diems (daily costs), course/conference fees, materials and equipment needed for participation. The fund will be open to those who live in areas currently served by BYTE (for 2018-2019 that is Yukon, Mackenzie Delta Region, NWT., Atlin, B.C.).
Interested youth may apply anytime up until March 31st, 2020. Please submit applications at least 1 month in advance of the opportunity you wish to pursue. We look forward to reading your applications.
