CAMPASPE Shire Council is inviting applications from community groups, schools and organisations wanting to run a Victorian Youth Week event in 2018.
General manager for economic and community development Keith Oberin said six grants of $500 are on offer to groups who would like to work in partnership with young people to organise local events or activities during Victorian Youth Week from April 13 to 22.
“The grant could be used for a variety of things, such as a movie night, sports event, workshop, activities day or a music event,” Mr Oberin said.
‘‘Victorian Youth Week empowers young people to activate their ideas about how to recognise and celebrate their achievements with support available from our youth engagement team.’’
Applications are open now and close at 5pm Friday, December 15.
Application forms are available on council’s website or by contacting youth engagement officer, Brigid Dullard on 5481 2200 or email [email protected]
