Go Think Big are offering 10 grants of up to £500 to young people who have good ideas for projects that use volunteering as a way of boosting their own skills and experience and those of their peers.
The Helping Hand Youth Project Initiative encourages young people aged 15 – 24 to make a difference to their communities by getting involved in a wide range of activities such as campaigning, fundraising and volunteering.
Go Think Big are looking for creative, imaginative projects that could, for example, be based around anything from skills workshops, podcasts, journalism pieces, live events, community initiatives or apps. Most importantly, projects should offer the young people delivering the activity the chance to involve and inspire their peers in making a difference to their communities.
Projects supported will be completed within 6 months, be realistic and achievable within the £500 award. Individuals or groups of people can apply as long as the Project Leader, who will be responsible for communications and finances, is a young person aged 15 -24.
The deadline for applications is Sunday 31st December 2017.
