Youth Access Fund
Based on financial need and a ‘pay what you can’ approach, the Youth Access Fund (YAF) provides grants that subsidize the cost of the OBC course fee. The YAF is funded through the generous contributions of our OBC community.
Applicants must be between 12–19 years of age; reside in Canada; fall within the income eligibility criteria; and demonstrate interest and motivation to participate. Many of our 2023 courses are eligible for a grant under the YAF, however please confirm with us at firstname.lastname@example.org before applying.
