You Can Do It Awards

You Can Do It Awards help make university or college an option for promising inner-city students, encouraging them to complete high school and plan for the future.

You Can Do It Awards tell students: "I believe in you. Your dreams are important. You are the future of our community."

In the initial building phase of this program, both the Province of Manitoba and The Winnipeg Foundation matched contributions to this fund. Thank you to everyone who has supported the You Can Do It Awards to date. Future gifts will help ensure the ongoing success of deserving students. 

You Can Do It Awards can be earned by students from grades five to 12 in eight inner-city schools. Based on hard work, attitude and commitment to learning, these awards can be accumulated annually, building a learning account to help support a student's education goals. Since the program started in 2011, 1,774 awards have been made.

The You Can Do It Awards are a collaboration between the Province of Manitoba's Bright Futures fund, Winnipeg School Division and The Winnipeg Foundation, along with donors from all walks of life.
