RBC Bright Future Award

RBC has established the RBC Bright Future Award to be given out at Volunteer Manitoba's annual Volunteer Awards Dinner. The award recognizes individuals or groups who have volunteered their time to help youth (ages 13-29) overcome barriers and prepare for success in the areas of career readiness and future readiness.

Young people have the confidence, optimism and inspiration to re-imagine how our country works and RBC is committed to empowering Canadian youth for the jobs of tomorrow. Working together with young people, RBC brings community leaders, industry experts, governments, educators and employers to help design solutions and harness resources for young Canadians. By helping young people unlock their potential and launch their careers, RBC can assist them with building a stronger future for themselves, and a more prosperous Canada for all.

The RBC Bright Future Award will be presented to an individual or group at the Volunteer Manitoba Annual Volunteer Awards Dinner on April 11, 2019, at the Club Regent Events Centre. The award includes a $5,000 donation to the recipient's charity of choice.

  • Future Readiness - includes volunteerism to help youth access/navigate resources and supports, education, awareness building, mentorship, empowerment of youth, or assisting youth in overcoming barriers.
