Youth Week


Youth Week 2019 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.

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.

Only applications received from Ara Taiohi members and New Zealand schools will be considered. If you are not sure if you are a member check out if your organisation is listed here or contact  Shannan.

Youth Week events must:

  • Fit with the Youth Week theme.
  • Use a positive youth development approach to design, develop, deliver and evaluate the Youth Week event.
  • Ensure youth participation is a key feature of the event from its inception to closing.
  • Create youth development opportunities (leadership, mentoring and volunteering) in your community.
  • Positively and actively promote young people by showcasing their talents, achievements and contributions to the community.
  • Promote the engagement of young people throughout the event – preferably through photos or other media.

Please note the next round of Youth Week grants will be open in January 2020.
