SVP Teens

Since 2014, SVP Teens has fundraised and granted over $37,000 to 8 local charities

SVP Teens is a leadership and community-development program for youth aged 12-18 in Waterloo Region.

Through discussions with community leaders, volunteering, fundraising and grant-making, SVP Teens participants are prepared and empowered to address the problems facing their community.

Once SVP Teens members decide on an area of focus, they raise funds, research the issue/area they have selected, solicit and evaluate grant applications from local nonprofits, conduct site visits, and make annual grants.

Interested teens are encouraged to apply today to join SVP Teens for the 2022/23 year. Apply and connect with them directly on the SVP Teens website SVP Teens website.
