2022 marked the fifth iteration of our Young Grant Makers (YGM) programme, with another groupof young Islington Residents aged 17-24.
This was the first time since the first Covid-19 lockdown in 2020 that we were able to offer all thesessions face-to-face. The desire to return to face-to-face sessions was high and, as the YGMsprogramme aims to help participants learn workplace skills, we felt it was important to theparticipants’ personal and professional development.
The Covid-19 pandemic caused many youth services and projects to shut, and in the wake oflockdowns many were still struggling to receive funding and deliver their services. This year thefocus on sharing power with young people felt even more needed as the transition from Covid tothese new times felt very uncertain.
This report outlines our approach in delivering the Young Grant Makers in 2022-23, along with an evaluation and the key learnings that we plan to take into the next Young Grant Makers Programme.
“This programme gives us a form of responsibility that shows society why young people should have some impact in decision making, as sooner or later, this will be our world for us to run.”
