Youth Program Funding Resources

 

We love introducing kids to climbing, however we acknowledge financial barriers and challenges that make our sport not as accessible, and we don't want any child left out!

 

If you are struggling to pay sign-up fees, please consider applying for funding support using the following programs. We also have a need-based Junction Youth Scholarship, made possible by donations from generous members.

If you have applied for funding and are awaiting a decision, please email programs@junctionclimbing.com with proof of application and if there is space in the class, we will hold a spot for you.

Junction’s Youth Scholarship Fund

Who is Eligible? Anyone who has been approved for external funding through a grant program. It does not need to be on the list below, but the funding must be related to lower-income children in sports.

How Much? We will top-up the remainder of program fees not covered by external grants, where possible for the current academic year. For example, if external funding only covers a part of the program cost or limited sessions every year, Junction will help cover the rest.

How to Apply? Please email programs@junctionclimbing.com with proof of funding approval from an external charity and request a top-up through our scholarship. Make sure to include which of our programs you are signing up for. No additional forms or application required. 

Things to Know: Please plan your application based on the external charity's processing times, as there are limited spaces in our classes.
