Youth development and support program



The Youth development and support program (YDSP) is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations. It is an annual national program designed to provide financial support to non-government, not-for-profit organisations to deliver community-based projects to develop young people by creating practical and innovative opportunities in their communities.

The YDSP funds eligible organisations to support initiatives that inspire and encourage young people aged between 12 and 24 years to develop skills and connections within their communities.

The focus for projects in 2013-14 is Building a safe and supportive culture. Generally, this year's theme for funding includes, but is not necessarily limited to, the following areas:

Applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations are strongly encouraged.

Please refer to the contact details/links below for more information about the YDSP, how to apply and examples of previous successful projects.
