On the occasion of the 2018 International Youth Day celebrated on 12 August, we bring to you the best and the latest grant opportunities for youths and youth organizations around the world.

JWH Initiative: Inviting Young People from Developing Countries

Deadline: 1 September 2018

The Joke Waller-Hunter (JWH) Initiative is currently inviting applicants for its grant program. The mission of the JWH Initiative is to provide an accessible and tailored small grant for education and training of individuals who are nominated by their organisation as potential future leaders.

In order to promote lasting change towards a more sustainable world the environmental movement is in constant need of inspirational and skilful leadership. Young people working for environmental CSOs, especially in developing countries, often have few opportunities to develop leadership skills due to a lack of resources for schooling, training or practical learning.

JWH Initiative creates opportunities for young people in the environmental sector in developing countries to unfold their full potential. By giving small grants to individuals to expand their knowledge, experience and training, the Initiative aims to strengthen environmental Civil Society Organisations capacity and efficiency.
