Mini-Grants for Young People!

 

Initiative grant scheme for 11-19 year old. With help of Burns Price Foundation, gives access to £100 starter grants to young people aged 11-19 to work on STEAM (science, tech, engineering, art, math) related projects that help them gain new skills and also create a positive benefit to their community.

 

A pilot last year and we successfully helped 2 refugee youth apply for the funding and complete their projects https://peacejamforaninclusiveeurope.org/first-winners-of-the-peacejam-laureate-of-the-future-programme/

 

See on flyer to the left, which you can share with young people for The Change-Makers Initiative grant scheme where we are giving £100 in mini-grants to young people and can claim up to £5000 in grants later on.
