Apply Now: AVNU Learning Journey Fund

AVNU Learning Journey Fund


AVNU is launching its new Leaning Journey Fund!

This fund is open to youth who have moved through AVNU: those who have attended 1 or more events hosted by 3+ AVNU partners.

We will be providing awards of up to $1,000 from a total pool of $5,000 to youth who have completed AVNU Certificates. This funding is intended to support the personal and professional development of young people who have moved through AVNU, so that they may continue their self-directed learning pathways.

Applications are due Tuesday June 21, 2016 at 5pm. Successful applicants will be notified by mid-July.

Examples of potential activities that are eligible for funding include:

+ Fees for a course, workshop, or other learning activities in a community or formal setting

+ Travel expenses and registration costs for attending a workshop, conference, or gathering in Ontario*

+ Payment or gift for learning one-on-one with a mentor or elder

+ Costs for learning materials for self-directed study

+ This is not an exhaustive list, but should give you a sense of the type of eligible expenses. Contact us at if you have questions.

If you are interested in this opportunity, but have not yet become an AVNU grad, our monthly event calendar is constantly updated and is available here. Please email to find out more about how to complete your certification and become eligible to apply for this fund.

*Note: Due to unforeseen funding changes, we are unable to support travel or opportunities outside of the province of Ontario this year. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
