Young people aged between 18 and 25 across the North of England are being given the opportunity to develop their entrepreneurship to create social change in their communities.
The Virgin Money Foundation Young Change Makers Fellowship Programme is a joint initiative between Virgin Money Foundation, National Lottery Community Fund and Northern Soul which aims to support young people in the North East, North West, Yorkshire & the Humber who are working to change their community for the better.
Successful ‘change makers’ will receive expert support, funding, and learning opportunities to bring their idea to life. This includes a bursary of up to £10,000, a travel grant, learning programme and mentor to help them to develop as a leader.
In light of the new national lockdown the decision has been taken to extend the application window for the Young Change Makers Fellowship programme in order to give as many young people the opportunity to apply as possible. The fund will now close to applicants on Monday 17th May 2021.
