FRRR ABC Heywire Youth Innovation Grants

The 2014 FRRR ABC Heywire Youth Innovation Grants program is currently CLOSED.

FRRR and ABC Heywire are proud to again collaborate to help communities take action on the great ideas generated by the 40 young Australian who attended the 2014 Heywire Regional Youth Summit.

This year, FRRR has granted $100,000 to assist 12 not-for-profit organisations in regional Australian communities to ‘adopt’ and act on seven innovative Heywire project ideas.

The communities selected to pilot the programs have been announced on our website, and we will profile them in our eNews as their projects come to life.

This video provides a brief overview of the original eight ideas that are the focus of this year’s grant program, seven of which have been adopted by a number of community groups across the country.

Last year, FRRR joined forces with ABC Radio and the positive impact of the inaugural grants are already being felt.

Watch this short video on the 2013 program’s impact to see how three ideas have been implemented to create real change. You can also find out more about the nine 2013 grant recipients.

It's an incredible feeling. It changes your life knowing that even as a teenager from the country you can make a real difference.
