Youth Week


Youth Week 2020 grants will fund events that celebrate and create youth development for young people in the community with the support of the Ministry of Youth Development and Sport New Zealand.

Youth Week grants aim to:

  • Support young people’s participation in the planning and delivery of Youth Week events in their communities.
  • Promote and celebrate positive images of young people; showcasing their talents, achievements, creativity and contributions to the community.
  • Create spaces for young people to share their thoughts and ideas with other members of the community.
  • Create youth development opportunities and youth developed resources.
  • Encourage wellness through physical activity, connection and expression.

Only applications received from Ara Taiohi members, New Zealand schools and organisations wanting to deliver a physical activity event or opportunity will be considered. If you are not sure if you are a member please contact us.

Youth Week events must:

  • Fit with the Youth Week theme : “E korero ana mātou. E whakarongo ana koutou? We’re speaking. Are you listening?
  • Use a mana-enhancing, positive youth development approach to design, develop, deliver and evaluate the Youth Week event.
  • Be alcohol, smoke and drug-free.
  • Promote the engagement of young people throughout the event – preferably through photos or other media.

Funding limitations:
