The Take the Lead Funding has been created to help Albertan girls and women become experienced leaders in the sport and recreation fields. Funding monies could be used for training, course fees, professional development, professional certification, clinics, equipment, travel, lodging, meals, and other training related activities. The Take the Lead Funding is not intended to support physical activity projects and recreational initiatives.
The Take the Lead Funding will provide as many as 5 funding opportunities of up to $1,000 per individual and/or $3,000 per organization to girls and women working or volunteering in the sport or active living communities, recreation field or school system who are working towards increasing their leadership capacity.
As result of directive from Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis InMotion Network will not be able to contract with or provide Take the Lead funding to individuals directly. Effective November 1, 2018 contracting must be done between InMotion Network, the individual and the Local or Provincial Sport Organization with funding directed through the Local or Provincial Sport Organization.
