Grants are now avail­able through the Vic­to­rian Govern­ment’s $12.3 mil­lion En­gage 2018-20 pro­gram.

The grants are open to lo­cal gov­ern­ments and com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions to sup­port young peo­ple to en­gage in com­mu­nity life and ac­cess ed­u­ca­tion, train­ing and ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties.

The grants of between $90 000 and $150 000 also aim to help young peo­ple aged 12 to 25 take part in lo­cal de­ci­sion mak­ing and other com­mu­nity ini­tia­tives.

The grants will help or­gan­i­sa­tions to en­gage young peo­ple through vol­un­teer­ing, men­tor­ships, lead­er­ship, skills build­ing and other com­mu­nity build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

They will as­sist or­gan­i­sa­tions to sup­port a range of young peo­ple, in­clud­ing those who are Abo­rig­i­nal, LGBTQI, dis­abled or from cul­tur­ally di­verse back­grounds.

Ap­pli­ca­tions for the En­gage 2018-20 grant round close on Fri­day, Novem­ber 10. To ap­ply or for more in­for­ma­tion, visit: www.youth­cen­
