School holiday funding


COMMUNITY groups and youth program providers are encouraged to put their applicatio­ns in for funding for school holiday programs.

The NT government is seeking applicatio­ns for a variety of drug and alcohol-free recreation­al activities, personal developmen­t workshops, and leadership programs during the Christmas school holiday period.

The Youth Vibe Holiday grants allow for community groups to apply for up to $2000 with a pool of $65,000 available.

Previously funded activities include boardgame tournament­s, squash sessions, bike refurbishi­ng workshops, esports, tennis coaching and leadership developmen­t.

Youth Minister Lauren Moss said a range of providers would be supported so young Territoria­ns across the NT could benefit.

“The biggest school holidays of the year provides an opportunit­y for young Territoria­ns to take advantage of an action-packed calendar of fun and exciting activities,” Ms Moss said.
