The “Supporting Our Youth” program is specific to REALTY EXECUTIVES LEADING and was initiated in 1994. Throughout the years we have been able to help over 800 youth in our local communities of Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, and Parkland County by providing support to families in need, in order for their children to participate in a variety of positive events.
The following clarifies the scope of our purpose:
“To encourage and assist children in need, in the areas of education scholarships and cultural and recreational projects, with a view promoting the mental, physical, and social well-being and development of these children.”
Our Executives have pledged a portion of their commissions to provide financial assistance to children for some of the following opportunities: Summer camps; dance; gymnastics; sports participation; music or drama courses; enrolment in scouting, guiding, cadets, school programs; municipal or other youth programs; recreational, cultural, or continuing education programs. We welcome applications for other selections as well.
The maximum assistance is about $200 per child and in some cases can be supplemented by other community fundraising. It is requested that whenever possible, applicants cover 50% of the program registration fee.
Applications are considered by a committee of Executives to determine qualification based on individual needs. Criteria for subsidy are based on the family's financial situation, family circumstances, and benefits to the child. Subsidies are made as soon as possible and are ongoing throughout the year. We believe the benefit this brings to children is well worth the time spent in application.
Contact our office at 780-962-9696 to request an application form. Completed application forms should be mailed, faxed or dropped off to us at:

12-year old Justin from Stony Plain enjoyed a weeklong outdoors camp in August 2015 and wrote to tell us about it. We were so pleased to assist him and his family!
