A COVID-19 support fund for Indigenous youth is open to applicants aspiring to create new online projects.
The grant of up to $500 is run by We Matter, an Indigenous-led and youth focused charity.
Applicants between the ages of 13 and 30 can submit online projects that will help support their peers during the pandemic.
“Our organization recognizes the mental health impacts encountered by Indigenous youth, their families and larger communities over the last few months,” We Matter said in a news release. “However, this new program will help to alleviate some of those effects by providing some tools and support that will help Indigenous youth shine as leaders in their community by promoting life, hope, culture and strength.”
