ZONTA CLUB OF OTTAWA YOUTH ENGAGEMENT GRANTS TO RAISE AWARENESS OF ELDER ABUSE - Extended date March 17, 2014
Funding Focus of the Zonta Club of Ottawa Youth Engagement Grants
The Zonta Club of Ottawa Youth Engagement Grants are intended to provide financial support to student groups seeking to host events, organize activities or programs aimed at combating abuse and promoting respect of seniors, through education, service or advocacy.
In 2013/14 the Zonta Club of Ottawa will support two groups led by young women in the Ottawa area who will initiate one or more activities aligned with the Youth Engagement Grant goal. The group may consist of young women and men but preference will be given to women led groups in line with Zonta’s mission to promote leadership roles for women.
There will be two grants of $250 each to cover out of pocket expenses to conduct the selected activity. In the case of activities requiring presentations, the Zonta Club of Ottawa will provide a speaker trained to address this important topic. In addition, the selected groups will be recognized at the Zonta Club of Ottawa’s annual awards event in May 2014 and at the planned vigil to raise awareness of elder abuse in June 2014.
Who is Eligible?
High School Councils, other high school accredited clubs or sports teams.
Zonta Says NO

It will also highlight Zonta International’s ongoing efforts to end violence against women and girls through the Zonta International Strategies to End Violence against Women (ZISVAW) program and through Zonta’s partnerships with the United Nations and its agencies.
