Under 35? Get yourself to CYM this summer and be part of the 2013 Youth Challenge!
Last summer, Canadian Young Friends Yearly Meeting received $25,000 to bring together at least 50 Young Friends and Young Adult Friends at CYM 2013. We know that funding can be a major barrier to attending and we’re incredibly excited to be able to help YFs and YAFs come together from across the country in Kemptville, ON this August 16th-24th.
Young Friends are typically defined as being at least 12 or 13, but the Youth Challenge may be able to fund younger Friends as well, particularly if they are the children of Young Adult Friends also attending CYM. All applicants should write their own applications.
Why two rounds of funding?
The hope is that we can help people plan well in advance or pull their plans together after summer employment plans are confirmed–please apply for the March deadline if you already know what your summer looks like!

UPDATE: Forms for CYM are now available. Of particular interest is the registration form, which has information on the costs of accommodation/meals/registration fees, so that you figure out how much support you’ll need to apply for.
