Vancouver Coastal Health offers youth-focused tobacco reduction funding

Vancouver Coastal Health is offering funding between $500 and $700 for youth-run or youth-focused tobacco reduction initiatives. A tobacco reduction initiative is any sort of project, event or activity that increases youth leadership and engagement in preventing youth from starting to smoke, helping youth to quit smoking, or protecting youth from the harmful effects of second-hand smoke.

The initiatives must run within the September 2017 to June 2018 school year. Applicants must be a school or a community-based registered non-profit organization working within the Vancouver Coastal Health Region (within City of Vancouver, Richmond, the North Shore, Bella Coola, Bella Bella, Powell River, the Sunshine Coast, and Sea-to-Sky communities), or a group of youth sponsored by and part of a school or a community-based organization. Application deadline is 5:00 pm, November 15.
