Redland City Council has launched a grants program to help local not-for-profit youth organisations run events during Queensland Youth Week (10-18 April 2021).
Mayor Karen Williams said the Redlands Coast Youth Week Grants had been established to recognise and support the great work done by youth community organisations across the city.
“These grants, which offer funding of up to $1500, will empower Redlands Coast not-for-profit groups to run local programs during Queensland Youth Week,” she said.
“Youth Week is Australia’s largest celebration of young people aged 12 to 25 and highlights the positive contributions they make in our communities.
“Council is pleased to be able to support our local youth organisations by helping to fund events which will give young people the opportunity to come together and make new connections.”
Redlands Coast Youth Week Grant applications close on Friday 5 March 2021.
Cr Williams said Council would also formally acknowledge the achievements of young Redlands Coast residents through the Young Legends Awards, with winners to be announced during Queensland Youth Week.
Award nominations close at 4pm on 12 March 2021.
