And you, what would you do with $25 000? - Montreal: National Bank roles out 
the red carpet 
MONTREAL, May 30, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - What would you do with $25000? Here is 
the challenge that was launched today by National Bank to over 1200 non-profit 
organizations (NPO) and close to 300 public elementary or high schools from 
the Montreal area. Until June 14(th) 2013, the organizations are invited to 
submit their inspiring youth initiatives that gravitate over three pillars of 
the program One for Youth, such as health, wellbeing, education and 
involvement, in order to receive a final support of up to $25000. In 2013, 
$1 million will be donated to support the youth all across Canada. National 
Bank will focus on 12 One for Youth committees, from greater Montreal, 
responsible for discovering and supporting the talent, audacity, vision and 
determination from here. 
"Every day hundreds of organizations and elementary and high schools support 
our young persons by investing their time and energy wholeheartedly. Today, we 
want to tell you that we are with you. And that we share this same desire to 
build a Canada of tomorrow that supports young persons by giving them 
necessary tools to fully realize themselves from birth to University", said 
Paul Katra, Montreal regional vice-president for National Bank . 
In the greater Montreal area as elsewhere, the One for Youth committee 
assembles executives from National Bank, key members of the community as well 
as one young person under 25, who have the mandate of choosing the projects 
that could potentially be awarded a financial support of up to $ 25000. 
"To all the NPO that work with youth as well as with primary and elementary 
schools: are you full of ideas and dreams? Do you have a project for young 
persons of your community? Do you have a youth initiative that can make a 
difference for your community? We want to get to know you and give life to 
your biggest aspirations. Because National Bank believes in you and is proud 
of you" adds Paul Katra, regional vice-president, encouraging socio-economic 
leaders of the region to get involved and promote the program within their own
