The Youth Violence and Human Trafficking Prevention Program (YVHTPP) will support community-based prevention initiatives that address the key factors putting youth (ages 12-29) and their communities at increased risk of violence and victimization, including human trafficking.
YVHTPP prioritizes Black and Indigenous youth, and other youth populations that are particularly at risk of experiencing violence and victimization, including human trafficking.
YVHTPP will provide a total of $5.2 million over three years from 2020-2023, and eligible applicants must be located in Hamilton, London, Ottawa, Thunder Bay, the City of Toronto, or neighbouring Indigenous communities (see guidelines for details).
Eligible organizations must be legal entities and can be:
- Not-for-profit corporations, including not-for-profit social enterprises and registered charities, or
- Indigenous communities (including First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities) located near YVHTPP target communities.
