Good Day Everyone!
NYA has started up a “Weekly Summary of Opportunities” which is all the newest opportunities we’ve come across. With the information easily accessible, this document includes things such as scholarships, events, and youth programs and initiatives of different varieties.
Here are a few right now with deadlines coming up this month.

Who For?: Youth (groups, individuals or networks) ages 14-25 from NWT, NU, or YT
Applications due: July 15, 2020
Start a project in your community! It can be any project, if you can think of it, we can help make it a reality. Each participant gets at least $500 in funding, and gets on-on-one support to finish the project. Past projects have included hunting groups, youth committees, arts groups, events, sewing projects, projects related to technology, the environment, and leadership!
