The Youth Opportunities Grant 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.
Funded projects from previous rounds have focused on providing young people with the opportunity to develop a range of life skills, including healthy behaviours; leadership, communication and teamwork; event management and planning; and volunteering opportunities that link young people to further education and training. See projects funded in previous years for 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016.
Applications are now open.
