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 launched 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.
Since the launch of this fund in 2018, we have funded $10,000 in experiences and opportunities for over 12 Northern youth! The fund has connected youth with equipment such as cameras and on the land gear to pursue their passions as well as travel and leadership opportunities! We are excited to share more of their stories with you in the coming months!
At this time, applications for the 2019/2020 Leadership Fund are closed. We will be evaluating the fund this summer to ensure it’s best serving Northern youth and look forward to launching the 2020/2021 applications this fall! Please check back at this page for details about past recipients and for more information about the 2020/2021 Leadership Fund coming later this fall!
