The grants will fund programs that actively involve young people in the development and
implementation of a project and will help to increase their community engagement. Twenty-five grants have been awarded.

Premier Roger Cook and Youth Minister Hannah Beazley.

“The Cook Labor Government is pleased to support initiatives that empower young people to
make a difference through the Youth Engagement Grants Program.” Beazley said.

meaningful engagement and opportunities.

“I’m continually inspired by the creativity of young people to drive positive change in their communities.” the minister said.
