The Youth Creativity Fund is a shared initiative of BEP Waterloo Region and the Creative Capital Of Canada movement that supports local youth in grades 5 to 12 because we believe doing so contributes to Waterloo Region's continued success. Learn more!
The Youth Creativity Fund fosters creative confidence by connecting creative ideas, designed by students, with donations from people passionate about seeing youth creativity flourish. After all: creative confidence is built through having the opportunity to try, experiment, fail… and succeed.
Check out how young people in Waterloo Region are practicing their creativity.
As part of a pitch for the Technovation competition, Leya Oommen and Ellen Brisley created an app to help with disaster aid, building a more efficient way for organizations and donors to coordinate aid in the aftermath of a natural disaster.
We want youth across Waterloo Region to feel they are valued members of our community. That they belong here. That the community supports them and believes in them. We also believe problem-solving creativity remains a vital source of new perspectives, ideas, and inventions—the fuel of a prosperous community. Through the support of people like YOU, our Region can continue to thrive on innovative thinking. By donating to the fund, you help all of our youth to learn about themselves and build a pool of creative talent for our community. Become one of our valued supporters!.
