The United States Embassy in Canada and Fulbright Canada are pleased to announce the recipients of the Community Leadership Program (CLP) grants. The CLP supports Canadian alumni of US government exchange programs who would like to make a contribution in their community. The CLP provides up to $8,000 to groups of three or more alumni who identify a need in their community and a strategy for addressing that need.
The grant recipient projects cover a diverse range of topics, including:
- the legacy of human rights violations and crimes against humanity in Latin America;
- the increased settlement of Francophone immigrants in Saskatchewan;
- using transformational education as a means of diversify the labs and research institutions of the future;
- restorative practices and Restorative Justice Theory;
- improving the quality of life of physically handicapped persons living in Montreal and increasing community awareness with regards to issues surrounding persons with disabilities;
- how seniors interact with their environments;
- a Beechwood Avenue (Ottawa) gateway; and
- gangs and gang violence in Saskatoon.
We are pleased to be supporting these important projects and look forward to sharing the results as we move ahead. The leaders of these projects welcome the support and participation of other alumni. If you are interested in getting involved in any of these projects, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
