Background of organization
The Foundation for Environmental Stewardship (FES) is a youth-led, youth-serving organization. Its mission is to uplift and empower the youth climate movement in Canada. Youth make up at least 50% of FES’ board and its entire leadership staff. Its structure includes youth at the board level and for its leadership roles.
This funding will allow FES to increase their core staff and infrastructure and to fundraise effectively. This will allow FES to support youth-led climate projects through re-granting, outreach to ensure youth across the country can access funding, establish a youth-led granting committee and provide core program and developmental services needed by youth.
