The grants are for Yarra-based projects or events delivered by young people for young people.
Here are some examples of last year’s initiatives:

- Creativity Club a project that hosts a variety of creative workshops including pottery, hair braiding and baking.
- Community Youth & Coaches Pathway Program a leadership program to help young club members of the Fitzroy Lions Soccer Club improve their sense of self-confidence while promoting healthy and active lifestyles.
To apply for a Youth-Led Grant, you must:
- be aged 16 to 25 years
- live, work, study or have a strong connection to the City of Yarra
Applications close 31 May 2023 or once available funding has been fully allocated. A total of $32,000 has been allocated for 2022/23.
Applications will be assessed by Council officers and priority will be given to projects, activities or events that support the key priorities in our 0 – 25 Years Plan.
