The Youth Initiative Program aims to encourage community groups and individuals to develop youth initiatives, programs and events to enhance community well-being. Incorporated groups can apply for a maximum of $500.00 per year to provide a new or existing youth initiative, program or event of value to young people aged 12-25 years living in the City of Prospect or Town of Walkerville.
There is no requirement for co-financing or matching funding however additional funding from another source is considered favourable. The money for this program has been sourced from the State Government for the purpose of increasing youth participation, promoting youth voice and to strengthen the Community's capacity to support young people. Funds will be allocated through a competitive and criteria-led process, where applications are assessed by the Prospect and Walkerville Youth Advisory Committee.
Decisions will be made upon how well applicants describe their project, demonstrate need, and how the project will engage local young people. The involvement of young people in the planning and implementation of projects is essential. Applications will remain open throughout the year. The application form can be downloaded from the Related Resources toolbar to the right of the screen.
