elmer helm youth fund

Each year hundreds of young people are denied their dream of a post-secondary education. And it’s not because they lack of talent or commitment – it’s because they lack the financial means.

Elmer Helm also had a dream. That dream was to make a positive difference in the community by acting on the belief that when people work together to strengthen their neighbourhoods, everyone benefits.

For over 40 years, Elmer worked with the Association of Neighbourhood Houses of BC to provide services that helped bring that dream to life.

In spirit of Elmer’s dedication to the youth, seniors and families of Vancouver; the Association has set up the Award in his name.

What is the Elmer Helm Youth Fund?

Each year, the fund provides financial assistance to deserving students who wish to pursue post secondary training in the artistic, academic or technical fields.

It is the aim of the fund to make such education possible for students who may otherwise not have the financial means.

Up to eight Elmer Helm Youth Fund awards will be presented, of which a minimum of four will go to new recipients, while up to four may be given to prior recipients who are continuing their undergraduate studies.

Each recipient will receive $1,500 in two payments of $750 in late August and January.

Who is eligible?

The Elmer Helm Youth Fund is open to young people under the age of 25 who wish to pursue post secondary training in an artistic, academic or technical field, and must be significantly involved in their community in a volunteer capacity.

The fund is not primarily an academic competition.

Evidence of strong academic achievement and potential is important.

However, it is equally important that the applicant has demonstrated a significant contribution to the life of their community to exemplify the Neighbourhood House ideal of community services.

Application procedures:

Candidates should send their application and the following documents to: The Elmer Helm Youth Fund: #203-3102 Main Street, Vancouver, BC V5T 3G7

  1. A letter from the candidate outlining personal and career goals, and an explanation of why the candidate believes he or she should be selected for the award
  2. Three letters of reference from members of the community or from school.
  3. Documentation regarding academic standing and other accomplishments
