Last year #iwill and Wakefield Council combined forces to fund an ambitious £80,000 youth social action programme for young people in Wakefield.
The programme funded 17 youth led, community programmes which, with funding, we are hoping to repeat in autumn 2019.
The programme will build confidence and develop leadership skills by engaging hundreds of young people in a range of projects from acting as ambassadors and organising music festivals to landscaping their local areas.
These bespoke projects will be designed by the young people themselves and delivered through local community based organisations.
The fund will not be opening until autumn 2019, but we are encouraging local organisations to register their interest now so that they can help to develop the young people in our district.
