United Way/Centraide (Central N.B.) Inc. is excited to look to our young people for solutions to the issues our communities face today and into the future. Youth are a valuable resource of inspiration, talent, knowledge, energy and above all, they truly do hold the future in their hands.
United Way is offering students across Central N.B. the opportunity to make a difference in their community. In the last three year’s over fifty (50) students have joined their local United Way Student Impact Committee (UWSIC) to take on an active leadership role in their communities. Students promote the funds they have available and invite community organizations and residents alike to submit grant applications. UWSIC members then evaluate the funding applications that are submitted, interview applicants directly about their project idea and decide as a committee where the best community investments can be made.
This is a youth-led initiative that allows students to show leadership in making lasting and measurable change in their community. UWSIC’s have been established in Cambridge-Narrows, Boiestown/Doaktown, Chipman, Harvey, McAdam and Stanley and Oromocto. We are pleased to be connecting students to their community, inviting their local municipalities to support them in their work and look forward to announcing the impact they will be making as the program progresses. Stay tuned!
