Funding is now available to local governments and community sector organisations to celebrate WA Youth Week in 2018.

The grants program enables organisations from across the State to work in partnership with local young people to deliver the week's events.

Organisations can apply for up to $1,500 for activities and events acknowledging the positive contributions of young people.

To be eligible, events must take place during WA Youth Week, which runs from 13-22 April 2018.

The WA Youth Week grants program is open until 25 October 2017.
