Thank you to the Youth Opportunities Fund (YOF) for granting Amadeusz’s Look At My Life Project funding support in the grassroots innovation stream for the 2014 – 2016 period.
Launched in the fall of 2013, the YOF is a $5 million per year program of the Ontario government, administered by the Ontario Trillium Foundation. The YOF operates in the Greater Toronto Area, including the City of Toronto and the regional municipalities of Durham, Halton, Peel and York. The YOF is an initiative of Ontario’s Youth Action Plan which in turn is grounded in the research and recommendations of the report on the Review of the Roots of Youth Violence. The YOF is guided by the priority outcomes for youth identified in Stepping Up: A Strategic Framework to Help Ontario’s Youth Succeed and is based on a model of positive youth development outlined in Stepping Stones: A Resource on Youth Development.
