Youth Bank is a partnership programme in conjunction with Ulster Bank, the Irish Youth Foundation and the Dublin Docklands Development Authority. This is an innovative grant making initiative run by young people for young people. Local Youth Banks provide small grants to fund young people's good ideas to benefit their local community.
Youth Bank is unique in that it is young people themselves who make decisions about who receives the money, about how their Youth Bank is managed and run. This project enables young Docklanders to become grant makers in their own community. The Youth Bank committee has full responsibility to make decisions and be accountable for how the money is spent.
Funding for 2009 is now available. Application forms and criteria are available for download here. Closing date for applications is Friday 3rd July 2009 at 5pm.
