  • Print

MTS is looking to make contact with organizations that serve youth all over the province.

On Feb. 18, the telecommunications company invited local organizations to apply for one of 10 new MTS Future First community grants valued at $10,000.

The grants are geared toward programs and projects that will help youth under the age of 24 "enhance knowledge, skills and/or leadership capabilities;" "develop/acquire skills to make healthy and positive life choices;" and/or "increase capacity to cope with life’s challenges."

"Our intent is to work with youth-serving organizations in our communities to remove barriers to success and help our young people achieve their full potential," Manitoba Telecom Services chief executive officer Pierre Blouin said in a release.

Manitobans will be asked to select the top 20 applications through an online voting campaign, and a group of "prominent Manitobans, including youth", will then determine the winners.

The awards will be given out on May 12, Manitoba Day.

Applications are due by March 30. Application forms and more information are available at
