MYD Youth Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Funding Stream – Launching Soon

11 February 2019

MYD’s Youth Enterprise and Entrepreneurship funding stream supports young people (12 to 24 years) to be better prepared for the future work environment through funding strengths-based enterprise education and skills development opportunities and investing in young people with business potential. These opportunities and investments will positively engage rangatahi in building skills and knowledge for life and learning, equip them to make successful transitions, and have meaningful options for making a living.

The funding will be distributed through two sub-streams, a ‘Programmes and Services’ stream and an ‘Opportunity for Young People’ stream.

  • The Programmes and Services funding stream is focussed on providing contributory funding to organisations to deliver enterprise activities to young people.
  • The Opportunity for Young People funding stream is specifically aimed at young people who have a new and/or innovative business or enterprise idea/project, to invest in them to help them progress on their enterprise journey. If you know any young people (12 to 24 years) who might be interested, please pass this information on!

Applications open (for both sub-streams): 12pm midday, 11 March 2019

Applications close (for both sub-streams): 12pm midday, 05 April 2019

There is approximately $600,000.00 available across these two sub-streams in 2019/2020.

Applicants will know the outcome of the process by the beginning of June 2019, for contracts starting 01 July 2019.
