The 2021 ACT Youth Week Grant program are available to assist groups of young people to organise events for other young people. These grants provide funding for innovative new projects that enable young people aged 12 – 25 years old to lead and participate in community development activities targeted for other young people in Canberra and the region.
There are many ways that an activity / event or project could be facilitated. For example through:
• Building supportive connections between community members using sport, recreation, cultural and creative activities and events organising and running events.
• Increasing opportunities for young people to participate in local community events, activities and youth related causes.
• Recognising the contribution that young people make to their local communities.
• Increasing opportunities for young people through the development of leadership skills, project management skills, networking encounters plus team work, communication and decision-making skills.
The ACT Youth Week Grants are managed by the ACT Government’s Youth InterACT team.
