One of the core missions of the Community Foundation is to develop community leadership, and we lead by example, always striving to foster community leadership.
One of our most successful leadership initiatives has been the creation and support of the Youth Advisory Council (YAC). The YAC committee gives youth a voice in our community, encouraging their ideas and developing leadership skills.
We foster community leadership through our Peer Leadership Awards. Held in each of the Campbellford elementary and secondary schools, the Peer Leadership Awards encourage and recognize our youth’s outstanding leadership qualities.
One of the purposes of the Community Foundation is to work with community partners to fund and complete projects that will enhance the community of Campbellford/Seymour, and thereby benefit all of Trent Hills.
Community Foundations of Canada is the national network for Canada’s 191 community foundations. Together they help Canadians invest in making our communities better places to live, work and play. More than 85% of Canadian communities have access to a community foundation – from our largest cities to our smallest towns. Collectively they hold combined assets of more than $4.6 billion and have put hundreds of millions back into communities over their 94-year history.
