The Young Citizens Foundation Scholarship
Canada’s future depends upon the development of strong leadership in our youth. The mission of the Young Citizens Foundation is to assist young Canadians to grow and mature as committed, knowledgeable and contributing Canadian citizens. The Foundation achieves this objective by encouraging young Canadians to participate in development programs operated by nationally recognized organizations such as The Royal Canadian Air Cadets that provide life-learning opportunities for our youth which will significantly influence and benefit their development as committed Canadian citizens. Participation in these organizations develops leadership skills, exposes students to the various citizenship ideals that the country values and provides some very positive mentoring. The provision of post-secondary scholarships to selected participants is critical not only because it encourages Canadian youth to join these programs but also because it is important that these students, who have developed these positive attitudes, continue their education so that they can achieve positions of leadership in their communities, regionally and nationally.
