Supporting Education

Valley First is a proud supporter of continuing education. For over 15 years, we’ve provided education awards to deserving secondary and post-secondary students who have demonstrated exceptional achievements in their schooling and made a positive impact in their communities.

Scholarships & Bursaries

Valley First scholarships & bursaries help our members exceed in their education, by offering financial support to post-secondary academic, vocational, or technological students.

Youth Leadership Award

Stay tuned for a new leadership award launching this year that recognizes youth who volunteer with their local food bank, community kitchen, a school meal program or any nonprofit or charitable organization focused on addressing hunger in our community.

Community Involvement Award
