Youth Week


Youth Week 2021 grants will fund events that celebrate and create youth development opportunities for young people and their communities.

Applications are now closed and are being considered by our Youth Week Grant Panel. Applicants will be advised week beginning 12th April.

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 accessible and inclusive 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.
  • Showcase the creativity and adaptability of young people to design events as we navigate through the pandemic together.

Youth Week events must:

  • Fit with the Youth Week theme: “We’re Stronger Together“.
  • Use a mana-enhancing, positive youth development approach to design, develop, deliver and evaluate the Youth Week event.
  • Work towards ensuring that activities and spaces are accessible and inclusive (Ara Taiohi & CCS Disability Action will support you on this)
  • Be alcohol, smoke and drug-free.
  • Promote the engagement of young people throughout the event – preferably through photos or other media.
  • Share contingency plans for your event and how it will look if it is to be run during the different Alert Levels (check out our Digital Youth Sector Hub for resources to support you with this).
