Become a Young Grant Maker!

17-24? Live in Islington? Want to make change in your community? Become a Young Grant-Maker! 

Young Grant Makers gives us the power and a voice to provide life-changing opportunities. I’ve seen it happen myself.

Each year the Young Grant Makers programme gives 12 young people the power to fund the services that are most important to them. You could be one of them!

Young Grant-Makers is a five-month programme that gives young people in Islington the power to choose how money is spent on youth services in Islington. This is a paid opportunity and you will receive training to build new skills and learn about funding services.

You don’t need any similar experience. We’re interested in your knowledge of what Islington is like for young people and what needs to change.

We want to make the programme as accessible as possible – we can discuss any support you may need to take part during your interview. The role is currently two+ hours per week at £11.05 p/h.
