Youth Week 2019: 18 - 26 May 2019!

Youth Week 2019 grants will fund events and activities that are created, designed and delivered by young people in their communities. The events and activities are intended to promote, support and affirm the diversity of young people of Aotearoa! These grants are made possible from support from the Ministry of Youth Development.

Youth Week grant information will be updated shortly!

Would you like support with planning your Youth Week event? Check out our "Tips to Create your Youth Week Event" handout.

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 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.
