National Youth Week grants are now open

Date posted: 10 November 2017

Have you got an event idea to celebrate Youth Week in 2018?

Not-for-profit community groups in Lake Macquarie City can apply for grants of up to $1000 to fund activities during National Youth Week, 13-22 April 2018.

Council’s Acting Manager Community Planning, Wes Hain, said National Youth Week celebrates the contribution young people make to our community.

“Youth Week is now the largest annual youth participation event in Australia and it’s important that young people in Lake Mac have the opportunity to be part of it,” Mr Hain said.

“We’re inviting community groups to get involved and apply for funding for events and activities for young people aged 12-24, to be held during National Youth Week 2018.”

“Youth Week aims to give young people a voice to raise awareness of issues and promote ideas from young people in Lake Macquarie. We’re looking for initiatives that involve young people in the design and delivery of events.”

Events and activities that achieve outcomes identified in the Lake Macquarie Youth Strategy, such as improving access to services for young people or ensuring they have the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to public life, will be highly regarded for funding.
