Youth Leadership Award

In 2013, the Gwaii Trust Youth Board created the Youth Leadership Awards. Each year the Trust awards $1,000.00 ($500 each) to go to two deserving students for their outstanding leadership within their school or community. Previous recipients have exhibited a high spirit of volunteerism, actively drawing peers together and mentoring others.

The winning applicants (1 from each high school) will be awarded a bursary of $500.00 dollars to go towards the student’s choice of post-secondary institution. This award is open to all local grade 12 students.

The Applications Process

The application will comprise of a short essay in which you cover off the following four points:

  • Describe your level of community involvement;
  • Describe any volunteer experience you may have;
  • Tell us about your leadership style, and how you have demonstrated leadership within your school or community;
  • If selected, what are your plans for the grant?

Submit your application essay to your high school; the school will recommend three students and forward those applications and recommendations to the Gwaii Trust Youth Board for final approval. Approved applicants will be notified shortly thereafter.

All applications become the property of Gwaii Trust Society and may be published on the Gwaii Trust website or in their quarterly newsletter.
