Youth Led Grant Schemes

Small grants up to £600 are available from PAVO to run projects that provide volunteering opportunities for young people aged 14-25 years.

The young people can be from an existing group or coming together to run a project of their own choosing. The application must be written by a young person.

Past projects have included organising fundraising events to support local charities, local environmental schemes, and improving facilities for older people.

A panel of young people from Powys assess the applications.

Project proposals must demonstrate:

  • volunteering in Powys.
  • how your organisation involves young people aged 14 - 25 in developing their voluntary activities
  • a minimum of 4 young people (aged 14-25) need to be involved but the project can involve anyone else
  • how new, high quality volunteering experiences will be delivered
  • how young people, particularly those that are disadvantaged or excluded, will be involved
  • leadership and accreditation courses will not be funded.
