Re-post from Exchange Magazine:

Last month, KWCF joined the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge, making up to $30,000 available to youth-led projects that address diverse and urgent local priorities in Kitchener, Waterloo, Wellesley, Wilmot or Woolwich.

By applying for a grant and bringing a project to life in our community, youth will have opportunities to lead, learn new skills, gain experience, and build relationships. – all things that will help prepare them for the future of work.

On the Table Waterloo Region

Join people from across Waterloo Region as we come together, make new connections, and build more meaningful relationships within our community.

We have partnered with the Cambridge & North Dumfries Community Foundation to bring "On the Table" to Waterloo Region. Between September 27th and 29th, we're inviting you to bring together your friends, colleagues or strangers over some food to talk about what matters most to you.

Solving social isolation is complicated, but connecting with people can be easy. Each host will choose their venue, arrange to serve food and drink, and talk about the issues and ideas they find most interesting. The topics will be collected and shared – giving us a snapshot of what’s on people’s minds throughout Waterloo Region right now.
