The Kids Recreation Fund (KRF) provides families with a lower income an opportunity to apply for funding for their children (aged 0 to 19 years) to participate in sport and recreational activities. The program is administered by Sport Yukon, a non-profit society with a mandate to enhance opportunities for all Yukon people in their pursuit of excellence, and in their enjoyment of participation in sport and recreation.
This initiative, established in April of 1999, helps children and youth whose families are experiencing financial hardship so that they may actively participate in sport, art, cultural, social and recreational programs. In its 14th year of existence more than 6,000 children/youth from across the Territory have accessed over $1,800,000 in program dollars.
The Yukon Government’s Health and Social Services sponsors a large portion of the program but local businesses, community clubs, groups and individuals also play an important role in supporting this initiative.
The committee is asking for your much-needed support in the investment of our youth, so they may achieve mental, physical, social, and personal development through participation in active living.
