Are you aged 13 to 19?
Do you live, work or study in Lambeth?
Do you have an idea for a project to benefit young people?
If you can answer ‘yes’ to all of these questions, then the Youth Mayor’s Fund is for you.
Lambeth’s Youth Mayor, Darren Tenkorang has been given a budget of £25,000 to fund projects run by young people, for young people, to make Lambeth a more exciting, rewarding place to be.
Whether you want to set up an arts project on your estate, a sports project in your local park, a media project from your local youth club, or organise visits or clubs for your school or college – Darren wants to know about it.
Last year the grant funded:
- A rowing club for young people hoping to compete in this year’s London Youth Games;
- A series of performing arts workshops for young people in Clapham;
- A project enabling young people to write, shoot, perform in and edit their own music video; and
- Sports, stage and multi-media equipment for a youth group based in Brixton
“Building on the success of last year, I wish Lambeth’s new Youth Mayor well in leading the consultation and giving young people a voice in choosing how to spend money on projects which are important to them”, said Councillor Paul McGlone, Lambeth council cabinet member elect for finance and resources.
Applications can be for any amount up to £6000, and must be received by Wednesday 30 June 2010.
