Grants of up to £1,000 are available to inspire and empower young people to make a difference in their communities.
Young people in England, Scotland and Wales aged between 16 and 24 years who are not in education or employment are eligible to apply. Two young people need to lead the project and engage a further 50 young people throughout the course of the project. The young people will need to have a youth worker/training organisation able to support them throughout the project.
Although the programme is primarily focused on young people not in education or employment, strong applications from other applicants will be considered.
Funding is available for projects that provide a positive benefit to the local community and that look to enhance the young leaders employability and leadership skills.
For 2015/16, applications will be considered monthly between July 2015 and March 2016. The final deadline for applications is 7 March 2016.
