We are on the hunt for young people with amazing ideas... 


We're throwing out the red tape so you can break new ground with your ideas for youth-led change! 

By pitching your idea you will have the chance to be awarded up to $10,000 to help you bring your idea to life in the community in 2020.

All ideas are encouraged, whether they are your wildest and most innovative, or the simple but significant. Be empowered to think outside the box, pursue the impossible, seize opportunities and create positive change on the issues that you feel passionately about for your community. 

All ideas pitched will be visually represented by the City of Canning in an exciting pop-up engagement installation for other young people and the wider community to vote for their favourite ideas, launching on 27 February 2020 in the Riverton Library. The ideas installation will "pop-up" in other locations around the City of Canning to give everyone the chance to vote for their favourite ideas for local youth-led change. 

The ideas with the most community votes will be successful in receiving a grant of up to $10,000, a City of Canning mentor and a toolkit to help them bring their idea to life in their community.
