The Andrews Labor Government is supporting young people in Melton with funding for youth-led events for the 2023 Victorian Youth Fest.

Member for Melton Steve McGhie said the Melton electorate has a number of successful recipients of 2023 Victorian Youth Fest grants, who will share in over $200,000 total funding to host youth-led events and activities.

Victorian Youth Fest is a month-long celebration in September, which provides grants of up to $2,000 to eligible organisations to host events, led by and for young people aged between 12 and 25. It provides opportunities to showcase talents, grow networks and to connect with peers.

Successful recipients in the Melton electorate include:

  • Fijian Community Association Victoria Inc for $2000
  • Melton City Libraries for $2000
  • Melton Specialist School for $2000

Applications supporting regional and rural events, and underrepresented community groups were prioritised through the Youth Fest program.
