SVP Teens, a youth-led program that engages teens aged 13-19 in hands-on fundraising and grant-making, seeks applications for their annual Community Grant (valued between $2500-3000) every year.

Like SVP Waterloo Region’s granting model, SVP Teens wish to invest their time as well as their grant dollars to further assist the organization(s) they select.


This year, SVP Teens will adopt the SVP model of providing a grant for unrestricted funding, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic which has created much hardship and reorganization for many charities in Waterloo Region.

We have extended the application deadline and updated our application. If your application has already been submitted or is in progress, please refer to the new application and contact our Teens Coordinator, Jill, to determine next steps.



The SVP Teens are seeking applications from any registered charity based in Waterloo Region, with the majority of their services focused within the Region. Organizations may serve a specific geographical area within the Region, or the Region as a whole. The charity’s programming may serve populations of any/all ages.
