Children and Youths Grants Program

The aim of the Jack Brockhoff Children and Youth Grants Program is to support projects and programs that will have a positive impact on improving outcomes for children and young people, wherever they may live in Victoria, who are at risk or vulnerable.

The Foundation is seeking applications in two key areas of interest:

  1. Addressing Youth Homelessness – with a focus on Young people (aged 8 to 25) at risk of homelessness
  2. Pathways to Employment – with a focus on supporting young people experiencing disadvantage (aged 15 – 25 years) to find suitable pathways to employment

Preference is given to applications that focus on:

  • Prevention and early intervention
  • Programs or projects that have the potential or capacity to continue once the funding of the Foundation has come to an end
  • Programs that can display support from the community and that have an involvement of volunteers.
