Grants between $1,500 and $3,000 are available to support activities and events during next year’s Youth Week WA from 10 to 17 April 2025.

Youth Week is the largest annual celebration of young people aged 10 to 25.

Grants up to $3,000 are also available for collaborative, community-wide events such as youth festivals with multiple organisations hosting a program of activities.

Youth Week WA offers opportunities for young people to express ideas, raise important issues and connect with peers in their local communities.

Thirty-six community organisations and local governments across WA received grant funding to support activities during Youth Week 2024 held earlier this year.

Applications for Youth Week WA Grants close at 2:30pm on Tuesday, August 6 2024.
