Youth Challenge Fund

Monday, 26 November 2012

Youth Groups in the UK can apply for grants of up to £2,500 to work on specific themes with youth groups in Germany.

The funding is being made available through the Youth Challenge Fund. The Fund aims to give young people the opportunity to enhance their international experience and intercultural awareness in a creative, practical and enjoyable way. The type of themes supported can include (but are not limited to): 

  • Culture and society 
  • Music, dance and drama 
  • Global issues 
  • Environment 
  • Multimedia and ICT 
  • Sport and outdoor activities. 

The Youth Challenge Fund is open exclusively to youth groups (and their leaders) in the UK and Germany and is aimed at children and young people up to the age of 25. For example, 10 young people from Youth Clubs in Southwark, South London visited young people in Langenham, Germany during the football World Cup. 

The closing date for applications is the 31st January 2013. Read more here
