You surely know that the federal government stopped funding our Program in 2012.
Since then, almost 5,000 youth have missed the opportunities you enjoyed and many communities no longer benefit from the contributions of enthusiastic youth.
Katimavik is ready to return to communities across Canada and your financial support is essential to help us transform lives of thousands of youth and other Canadians. By contributing to the ‘Katimavik Launch’ fund you will help us engage youth and communities on important issues like reconciliation, gender equity, eco-stewardship and multi-culturalism.
We cannot allow Canada to face increasing levels of youth disengagement – Katimavik needs to continue developing diverse youth as capable leaders and caring citizens, including mobilizing youth around Canada’s commitment to reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
RISE UP FOR KATIMAVIK
Your support is key in helping us secure federal and other funding to relaunch and sustain the program by 2018. It will show other stakeholders that this is a Program worth investing in for the future of our youth, communities and country.
Reaching an initial target of $35,000 will provide the costs for the first house in the Re-Launch. It will be designated as the “Alumni House” so people know it was made possible by you.
It will be there to acknowledge your support in years to come. We thank you in advance for your support! Your donation is greatly appreciated and will be invested in the next generation of Canadian young women and men!
