The Archbishop of York Youth Trust today re-opened its grant making programme for youth projects across the north of England.
Since the Archbishop’s Youth Trust began awarding grants in 2009, it has awarded £70k to more than 20 youth projects that reach out to thousands of young people every day. Many of these supported projects have been in areas of real deprivation where young people have been facing many challenging situations. As a result the Youth Trust has seen lives changed and young people inspired to become active citizens in their communities, making a real difference through serving others.
The Archbishop of York said:
“I am delighted that my Youth Trust is working hard to support valued youth projects through its Grant Making Programme. I hope that through these grants the Trust will help young people become more active in their communities and I’m looking forward to hearing more stories of inspirational young people growing in leadership and serving others.”
Dan Finn, Director of The Archbishop of York Youth Trust said:
“One of the joys of the Grant Making Programme is that I get to visit youth projects to see first-hand the amazing work that is taking place. We carefully monitor each grant we make and we regularly report on how the money spent makes a real difference to the lives of young people. We are looking forward to reading the grant applications coming in and if you’d like to help fundraise for the Trust, or find out more on the youth projects that we have supported, please visit our website or get in touch with us today”
