Empower Youth Grants | Youth Wellbeing Grants | Youth Central

The Victorian Government wants every young person to have the opportunities and support they need to reach their potential.

Due to a range of circumstances, some young people become disconnected from family, education and community and require more intensive and tailored support to achieve their goals and enhance their life outcomes.

The Victorian Government is investing over $2 million over four years to expand on the Empower Youth program. Applications are now open for organisations to apply for Empower Youth.

What will Empower Youth funding do?

Each organisation will engage youth workers to provide intensive, coordinated support to young people to strengthen their health and wellbeing, their connection to community, their engagement in education and training and their pathways to employment.

  • Brimbank
  • Casey
