Building leaders from the North End for the North End!

Our local leaders work to raise funds for their positions, but most have no connection outside of their community on which to call for support. We are seeking donors to walk alongside these local leaders. Please consider encouraging and empowering our local leaders through your monthly or one-time gifts.

ICYA has determined that we need to commit ourselves to hiring more Indigenous youth to be a vital part of our ministry and the Indigenous Leadership Initiative will make that possible. We are very excited about this bold new direction.

In 2017, ICYA is launched the new Indigenous Leadership Initiative. The two donors caught the vision we have for leaders by seeding $150,000 towards hiring young leaders from our community. Our supporters have told us that this just makes sense! Nearly 25% of our volunteer hours are done by youth from the neighbourhood, so these leaders are committed to transforming their community.

As a donor you will team up with Indigenous leaders and you’ll also receive regular updates from our team of leaders you support.

Your single or monthly donation can impact over 7+ different ICYA staff throughout the year! Even more during our summer programming!
