Passion to Purpose
Passion to Purpose is a program by The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award – Canada. It aims to empower young Canadians to create meaningful service-led projects in their communities. Through the P2P program and in partnership with the Federal Government, young Canadians have the opportunity to apply for a community grant of up to $2,000 in an effort to bring the projects to life.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is a global program with the goal of challenging, empowering and recognizing young people between the ages of 14 and 24. From coast to coast to coast since 1963, we have helped motivate young Canadians to set goals and challenge themselves to take control of their lives and futures. The classroom is not the only place to nurture the potential of one of our country’s greatest natural resources – our youth. We strive to reach young Canadians in communities across the country and provide a platform that helps them chart their individual lives and equips them with important life skills. Learn more
Canada Service Corps is a federal program that is being developed by youth, for youth. The program aims to support young Canadians to get involved in their community through service opportunities, while at the same time gaining valuable skills that will benefit them in life and work. Just as important, the experience will give them a new perspective on their community and will make them better citizens. The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is one of the ten partners participating in this initiative. The Canada Service Corps is currently in the process of accepting grant applications to get your project ideas started so you can make a difference in your community. Learn more
