The passion2action PROJECTS Program involves Five Components

This is not your typical microgrant program! While the dollars and cents will help to bring your project to life — thanks to our friends at the Crown Investments Corporation of Saskatchewan — passion2action PROJECTS is focused on the journey from idea to implementation and all of the important skills you can gain along the way. Over the course of the five-month program running from January 2022 to May 2022, you will have access to project support and mentorship, leadership development workshops, and networking opportunities. 

passion2action PROJECTS is an opportunity for personal growth and leadership development as you work on a service project and make a tangible impact in your community.
