Shape It! grants for regional youth advisory groups
Shape It! grants kick-starting change in rural and regional communitiesThe Shape It! grants provide one-off seed funding for youth advisory groups in rural and regional Victoria to kick-start a project to create positive change in their local area.
The first round of recipients of the Shape It! grants have now been announced by the Minister for Youth Affairs Ryan Smith. These 20 grants have been awarded for a wide range of projects including a cyber safety campaign, youth mental health film festival and social enterprise workshops.
Shape It! is all about supporting young people living in regional and rural Victoria to get involved and engaged in decisions that affect them. They aim to help you create a positive change in your community on an issue you care about. Further Shape It! grants will be available in 2014 and 2015.
The 20 grants are listed below.
Youth advisory groups such as youth councils, youth advisory committees or youth action groups are already creating change in their local community. These grants will give more young people a chance to have a say in future community directions, strengthen connections and develop new skills.
