Youth Opportunities Program closing 26 June 2017 (NSW)
The NSW Minister responsible for Youth, the Hon Ray Williams MP, has announced the next round of funding for the Youth Opportunities Program.
The Program provides one-off, time-limited grants of up to $50,000 to not-for-profit organisations and local councils for youth-led and youth-driven community projects that have a positive youth development focus.
Applications for funding are invited from non-government organisations and local government to deliver new projects which enable young people to lead and participate in community development activities.
Projects funded under the Youth Opportunities program are expected to involve young people in all aspects of the project (initiating, leading, managing and participating). Projects which are genuinely youth-led and youth-driven are those initiated by young people in response to what they have said they need.
They are seeking applications which address young peoples identified needs in an innovative way and increase young people’s connections to the community. Organisations must have spoken with young people prior to submitting an application.
Applications are now open
Applications must be submitted by 5pm on Monday, 26 June 2017. Applications submitted after the closing date will not be accepted.
