Youth Vibe Holiday Grants open

Territory Families is calling for individuals, community groups and organisations to apply for a share of $60,000 worth of funding available as part of the Youth Vibe Holiday Grant program, providing a range of opportunities for young Territorians during the December-January school holiday period.

Grants of up to $2,000 are available for events or programs that encourage positive choices among young people and offer development in areas like improving self-esteem, team building, professional experience and leadership.

Last year 42 activities were funded across the Territory, including sports programs, healthy eating programs, free movie afternoons and rap workshops.

Applications for the Youth Vibe Holiday Grant program close on 29 September 2017. For more information, visit www.youth.nt.gov.au or call the Office of Youth Affairs on 8999 3881.
