The Youth Fund

The Our Generation Team are introducing The Youth Fund to the local communities in Cavan, Monaghan, Sligo, Leitrim and Donegal. This will be a 6-month personal development programme for young people aged between 14-25 who will be the guardians of a €1000 grant. Young people will identify areas of local development and positive change needed within their communities and will 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.

These young leaders will have the opportunity to take an active role in their community through interviewing, shortlisting, and awarding money to one or more groups that can enact positive change in their area. Through this programme the young people are able to learn and develop a wide range of skills to include leadership, teamwork, responsibility, confidence, decision-making, problem-solving and more!

Our aim: Support young people to lead their local communities in a new peaceful communities movement.
