The Hon Gareth Ward MP has announced up to $1.5 million funding for new Youth Opportunities projects to commence in 2020.


The Youth Opportunities program provides one-off, time-limited grants between $10,000 and $50,000 to not-for-profit organisations and local councils for youth-led and youth-driven community projects that have a positive youth development focus.

Funded projects from previous rounds have focused on giving young people the opportunity to develop a range of skills, including life skills and healthy behaviours; leadership, communication and teamwork; event management and planning; and providing volunteering opportunities that link young people to further education and training.

Since the program was launched in 2012, Youth Opportunities has provided $10.4 million in funding to 211 projects across NSW.
