Dear Michael K. Barbour ,

The Vimy Foundation is placing history at the forefront of community leadership.

Through the new education program, Vimy Inspires Tomorrow, youth ages 13 to 17 can apply lessons from history to create transformative community projects, for a chance to earn a $1,500 project grant.

Six activities drawing on different aspects of First World War history demonstrate how Canadians of different ages, backgrounds, and military ranks took on leadership roles, and the impact of their decisions, actions, and contributions during and after the war. The activities will enable participants to examine, discuss, and exercise key leadership skills, all of which can be applied to their daily lives as they become leaders of tomorrow.

Youth who complete one or more activities can submit a one-page proposal for a community project to be eligible for additional leadership training and a $1,500 community project grant.

facilitator’s guide is also available with information about the activities, which are designed to adapt to online or in-person formats.

The deadline to submit a one-page proposal is March 31, 2022, but the activities are available all year round.
