Recruitment for Islington Giving’s 2023/4 Young Grant Makers’ Programme is now live! The opportunity is open to all 17–24-year-olds who live in Islington, want to gain skills, earn money and make change in the community. This year, the programme is led by two former Young Grant Makers, Izzy and Freya.
Young Grant Makers is a five-month programme that gives young people the power to choose how money is spent on youth projects in Islington. It is a paid, part-time opportunity (2-3 hours per week) and all participants will receive support and training to build new skills and learn about funding services.
No prior experience is necessary, only a desire to get involved. Some of the most common FAQs are answered by Izzy on the Islington Giving website, but please get in touch if you have any questions. The closing date for applications is Friday 15th September, 12pm.

Over the 12 weeks, there will be live workshops, online learning modules, networking opportunities, dedicated mentors and the opportunity to apply for 1 weeks paid work experience with one of GNA’s industry partners!
