Two months ago we submitted an application to the FYA Propeller Project. Propeller celebrates the social change projects of everyday young people in communities across Australia. The Propeller Project recognises the ideas an innovations of young Australians and allocates grant money for children to develop their ideas, concepts and help make them a reality. Some of the projects they have supported are:
- Breaking down the door
- R U OK? Community Conversations and
- Swish Start
Propeller fund projects need to be youth-led, have a social or environmental focus, demonstrate local impact and have community networks and support. Young people aged 12 – 25 can apply for these grants.
The children in the team received a $500.00 grant from Samsung (Propeller sponsorship partner) to use towards developing the Hot Spot Spotter and drone. You can take a closer look at the other projects Propeller have supported by visiting the following link.
Keep posted on this site to see how the children use the grant to develop their concept and assist the fire recovery process in our community.
