|The Gunbalanya Men’s Music Initiative began because some older men were worried about the younger men getting in trouble and wanted to share the good news with them through music and give the boys and men something better to do. © M Pearson, Diocese of the Northern Territory, 2019.|
Youth Engagement grants support mission activities that benefit Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people. The grants are appraised and prioritised by NATSIAC, the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglican Council.
In the Northern Territory, a Youth Engagement grant has assisted with the production of culturally relevant Sunday School material for use by Aboriginal congregations. Funds have also assisted the burgeoning youth ministry at Bamaga on the Cape York Peninsula.
Grant applications for Youth Engagement are managed through the same process as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Mission Grants.
Your support for this work will be used for projects across Australia to assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and youth.
In 2020 Youth Engagement needs $30,000
