Funding applications are open for Not for Profit organisations who deliver community based programs with a focus on youth development and support.
The Youth Development and Support Program (YDSP) is an annual national program designed to provide financial support for non Government and Not for Profit organisations to deliver creative and innovative community-based youth development projects.
The program will provide funds to eligible organisations to support initiatives that inspire and encourage young people aged between 12 and 24 years to develop skills and connections within their communities.
A total of $500,000 is available for organisations to deliver projects for implementation in 2013-14.
Grants are available in two different stream rounds of up to $40,000 or up to $70,000, depending on the criteria.
The focus for projects in 2013-14 is ‘Building a safe and supportive culture’.
Applications should demonstrate how the project will develop young people’s skills to engage in positive non-violent, non-bullying behaviours in their community.
Successful projects will enhance wellbeing and build young people’s resilience and ability to cope with stress, or assist young people to engage with their community and encourage leadership.
