The Youth to Youth Board of the United Way of Leeds & Grenville is now accepting grant applications.

The local United Way’s junior board of directors covers high schools in the united counties area. Each of the nine secondary schools has an opportunity to be represented on the board. “Our youth board continues to create positive impact within our community, understanding that the support could be for our neighbours, classmates or friends,” Youth to Youth President Darby Mallory stated in a release.

Grants of up to $500 are available to youth-related programs that focus on subjects such as providing affordable activities, improving the lives of young people and giving them a voice as well as preparing them for the future.

“It is wonderful to see the junior board working together to help change lives of youth in our community,” stated Melissa Hillier, executive director of the United Way of Leeds & Grenville.

Organizations that already receive United Way funding are ineligible for a Youth to Youth grant.

Applications are available at the United Way office at 42 George St., Brockville and via email at Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs. Vous devez activer le JavaScript pour la visualiser.. The deadline to apply is Oct. 30 at 3 p.m.

We invite letters of intent from registered charities across Canada to increase children’s opportunities for self-directed play outdoors in all settings – at home, in school, in child care, the community and nature.

Please review all of the sections below and the newly released Position Statement on Active Outdoor Play for further background. Note that the application form can be found below, under the section "More Information."

The Lawson Foundation envisions all Canadian children and youth engaging regularly in outdoor unstructured play.

The Lawson Foundation began to fund and learn about active outdoor play through two earlier projects (the former Active Healthy Kids Canada Report Cards on the Physical Activity of Children and Youth , and a Physical Activity topic for the Encyclopedia on Early Childhood Development). Further, over the last two years we have invested in the development of three published academic papers (risky play, outdoor time, active outdoor play), the ParticipACTION 2015 Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth and the recently released Position Statement on Active Outdoor Play from a multi-sectoral group of 14 pan-Canadian stakeholder organizations and academics vested in this issue.

This Canada-wide call for applications about active outdoor play builds on those investments and the ongoing work of stakeholders. This call is exploratory in nature as we seek to better understand how to support Canadian communities to foster children’s opportunities for unstructured outdoor play. We hope to engage with great ideas and organizations delivering community programs, services, and supports, as well as policy and research initiatives in the broad areas of active/outdoor/unstructured/self-directed/risky play. (See further below for our commentary on terminology).

We will be sharing our process and learning on our blog as the work unfolds.

Submission deadline: Tuesday, July 14, 2015 at 1:00 pm EDT

Je vous informe, par la présente, d’un appel à déclarations d’intérêt concernant un projet de financement en vertu du volet Programmes du Fonds pour les communautés en santé (FCS) du ministère de la Santé et des Soins de longue durée. Le volet Programmes du FCS soutient des projets de promotion de la santé qui améliorent la santé et le bien-être de la population en misant sur une bonne alimentation, l’activité physique, la promotion de la santé mentale, la prévention des blessures et la prévention de l’abus d’alcool ou de drogue.

Le volet Programmes du FCS finance des organismes sans but lucratif et non gouvernementaux qui fournissent des services en milieu communautaire. Ces organismes doivent être constitués en personne morale et en activité depuis au moins un an. Les organismes provinciaux-territoriaux des Premières Nations sont aussi admissibles à un financement dans le cadre du FCS. Les bureaux de santé publique, les hôpitaux, les collèges et universités, les écoles ou les conseils scolaires, les municipalités ou d’autres organismes gouvernementaux et les conseils ou commissions peuvent agir comme partenaires du projet, mais ne peuvent recevoir directement des fonds du FCS. Même si votre organisme n’est pas admissible à un tel financement, nous vous demandons de diffuser cette information au sein de vos réseaux et à vos collègues des organismes admissibles.

Le ministère évaluera toutes les déclarations d’intérêt et invitera les organismes sélectionnés à soumettre une proposition de projet complète. Le financement est disponible pendant une période maximale de 19 mois (2015-2016 et 2016-2017), de septembre 2015 au 31 mars 2017. L’approbation de financement donnera suite à un processus d’examen concurrentiel au cours duquel les critères et objectifs du FCS, la capacité de production des organismes, les preuves concrètes étayant les activités proposées et la demande globale de financement ont été pris en compte.

Le gouvernement est déterminé à réaliser les priorités énoncées dans Priorité aux patients : Plan d’action en matière de soins de santé, l’étape suivante du plan de l’Ontario visant à modifier et à améliorer le système de santé de la province. Le volet Programmes du FCS respecte et appuie le Plan d’action en finançant des projets conçus pour améliorer l’accès aux services de promotion de la santé, relient les gens à des services coordonnés dans leur propre localité, les informent et les aident à prendre des décisions éclairées et à modifier leur comportement, et protègent le système de santé public en optimisant les ressources et en améliorant la santé et le bien-être de la population de l’Ontario.

Les priorités et les exigences en matière de financement établies en vertu du volet Programmes du FCS sont énoncées dans les lignes directrices ci-jointes. Si votre organisme a des questions, vous pouvez les envoyer au ministère par courriel à Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs.
