The Youth Fund

The Youth Work Ireland Our Generation Team have introduced The Youth Fund to the local communities in Cavan, Monaghan, Sligo, Leitrim and Donegal. This is a 6-month personal development programme for young people aged between 14-25 who are the guardians of a €1000 grant. Young people identify areas of local development and positive change needed within their communities and advertise for local groups to apply for funding for this pot of money to support these improvements. Activities that may be funded can be anything from a community fun day to an intercultural programme, so long as they can show how they will address the need the young people have identified.
