Launch of A4U and BeActive 2019 Schemes

As part of its support programme for youth organisations, Aġenzija Żgħażagħ has launched its call for funding for initiatives to be implemented during 2019 under the A4U and Be Active schemes. The launch and information meeting were held in an event for youth organisations held last Saturday, 15th September 2018. These funding schemes are managed and administered by Aġenzija Żgħażagħ within the Parliamentary Secretariat for Youth, Sport and Voluntary Organisations.

The A4U - Assistance for you scheme, supports youth organisations to grow and further develop the services that they provide to young people. Youth organisations are invited to come up with initiatives that will help them strengthen and develop their service, mission and identity. As from this year, organisations are to submit proposals that strengthen the impact of this year’s organisation’s/youth service activity plan by:
i. improving/refurbishing the premises;
ii. purchasing resources.
The maximum budget allocated to each A4U initiative is of €1,500.

The Be Active scheme continues supporting youth organisations in the development, planning, implementation and evaluation of projects that are aimed to provide opportunities for participation through active citizenship of their respective members as well as for the community and society.

The initiatives proposed from the organisation have to be in relation to at least one of the following themes:

• Human Rights
• Cultural Diversity
• Mental Health
• Intergenerational dialogue
• Tools for democracy
The maximum budget allocated to a Be Active initiative is of €2,000.
