Youth Week Tasmania 2018 grants program opens

The Hodgman Liberal Government is a strong supporter of young Tasmanians through advanced training, the arts, sport and academic and skills programs.

Youth Week Tasmania 2018 is an annual celebration of young Tasmanians 12-25 and recognises and celebrates their contribution to our communities.

Youth Week Tasmania will run from April 13 to 22, 2018, and this week a grants program will open to help support Youth Week Tasmania events.

The grants program offers grants of up to $2000 to help deliver Youth Week Tasmania 2018 events and activities.

Funded events can:

  • Showcase the talents and skills of young people;
  • Profile the role of young people and celebrate their contributions; and
  • Raise issues of concern to young people and explore possible solutions.

Youth initiatives sponsored by the Tasmanian Government have included the Tasmanian Youth Parliament and the Tasmanian Young Achiever Awards.

The Guidelines and Application Form for the Youth Week Tasmania Grants Program 2018 are available at www.dpac.tas.gov.au, by email at csrgrants@dpac.tas.gov.au or telephone on 1800 204 224.

Applications must be received by close of business on December 20, 2017.
