2021 Pathways to Employment Grants Round

A flagship funding program of the Inner North Community Foundation, this program funds projects that help vulnerable local people develop work and life skills and progress the journey to work, with a particular lens of responding to the ongoing impacts of Covid-19. As always, thanks to IntoWork Australia for their leadership and support.

Young Changemakers Grants Round – Now closed

This financial year, a total $105,000 will be distributed in grants by local young people across four schools and eight classrooms, through a C-19 lens. The INLLEN is involved, supporting contact with various schools and development of teacher resources. Teachers and students are engaged and enthusiastic about their pathway in philanthropy through the program. Applications closed May 3, with decisions to be made in the coming weeks.

With thanks to Clifroy for being a long-term partner and to Ecstra Foundation for helping it scale this year.
