Connect History, Experiential Learning, and Leadership with the Vimy Foundation

The Vimy Pilgrimage Award

Students can apply now!

This experiential program gives youth in Canada, ages 14-17, the opportunity to immerse themselves in history in the places where it happened.

Youth who demonstrate an outstanding commitment to their community are eligible to apply for this fully-funded education program to study Canada’s First World War contributions in Belgium and France in spring 2023.

The program features daily visits to important First World War sites including museums, cemeteries, and historic battlefields. Participants gain unique perspectives about Canada’s role during the First World War and connect with like-minded peers from across the country.

The deadline for applications is December 20, 2022.


History at the forefront of community leadership:
Vimy Inspires Tomorrow

Through the newest Vimy Foundation education program, Vimy Inspires Tomorrow, youth ages 13 to 17 can apply lessons from history to create transformative community projects.

Six free, bilingual history-based activities will enable youth 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.

The deadline for project proposals is January 31, 2023, but the activities are available for download year-round.

Read the latest RBLI news and initiatives to support Armed Forces veterans and their families.

A newsletter from the organization formerly known as There But Not There.


The RBLI Newsletter is back!

We’re delighted to be back and eager to provide our supporters with the latest news, products and services to support our Armed Forces community. In this issue, we reflect on the Remembrance period, and share some exciting news including a Royal visit, updates in Government initiatives to improve veteran support and more.

Armistice Day Service 2022

On 11th November 2022, RBLI staff, residents, and people from the local community gathered together in RBLI’s Garden of Honour to remember the brave souls who have given their lives so that we may experience the freedom and luxuries we have today.

The service was live streamed on RBLI’s Facebook page and included prayers from Rev Ruth Peet, speeches from veterans, and wreath laying from numerous members of the local community including schools, veterans and council members.

RBLI host a Royal visit

Earlier this month, we were honoured to welcome Their Royal Highnesses Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie to Royal British Legion Industries, who kindly took the time to see RBLI’s vital care, welfare and employment services delivered to Armed Forces veterans across the UK.

The Princesses came to meet veterans who have completed RBLI’s Lifeworks employability programme after supporting the course earlier in the year at The Big Curry Lunch. They learnt more about how our specialist support helps veterans at all stages of transition to rediscovering independence outside of the military.

Thank you so much for your ongoing support for RBLI.
