Youth Action and Wellbeing Grants

Grants totalling up to $100,000, open to groups led by young people (under 30) across the country working to create positive systemic change.


What are the Youth Action and Wellbeing Grants? 

At FYA we back young people to make the change they want to see in the world. These grants aim to support under-resourced youth-led groups and grassroots campaigns with lived experience of injustice, by providing the resources they need to make a positive difference and helping them take care of themselves and their communities.

We are offering two types of grants:

  • Youth Action Grants: $5,000 – $15,000 to fund actions that create systemic change. We’ll distribute grants up to $75,000 in total.
  • Wellbeing Grants: $2,000 – $5,000 to support the wellbeing and sustainability of youth-led groups. We’ll distribute grants up to $25,000.

Beyond the money, recipients will have access to training and coaching from, media, strategy development, team culture and wellbeing, to community organising.
