The ParticipACTION Teen Challenge allows teens to explore innovative ways to get active, and then provides micro-grant funding, called Teen Physical Activity Grants, to registered community organizations to support teens’ physical activity programs. Recreation NL awards these grants quarterly through the ParticipACTION Teen Challenge program. Overall Recreation NL distributed over 5,100.00 this quarter to support these programs across the province.

Please note it will take up to 3 weeks to notify all applicants about their submission. Unfortunately, due to the number of grants we receive and the amount of funding we have per quarter we are not able to fund all submissions. Those programs/events that are unique, reach a variety of teens, show involvement from the youth with regards to ownership/leadership with the program/event, etc will be given preference to those that do not.
