The Coca-Cola Australia Foundation (CCAF) is inviting charitable organisations with programs focused on economically empowering young people to apply for its latest Flagship Partner Grant.
The purpose of this year’s grant is to enable young people aged 15 to 24 to thrive by equipping them with skills and opportunities to participate in the workplace.
Applications open on Monday 15 August and will close on Friday 2 September with the successful organisation receiving up to $600,000 over a three-year period.
Malcolm Hudson, CCAF Chairman, said the grant will unlock a myriad of opportunities for young people.
“We live in a world that is fast-changing and forever challenging. Through our support of a new Flagship Partner, we hope to enable greater access for young people to resources, education and support that will foster their development of skills needed to thrive in the modern workplace and embrace the green economy, from financial literacy and digital platform proficiency, through to confidence and networking.
“Forging a better future for the next generation of Australians is at the heart of what we do, and we look forward to the possibilities this new grant will help unlock for young people.”
Since 2002, CCAF has donated more than $17 million in funding to hundreds of organisations across Australia as part of its Flagship Partner and Employee Connected Grants programs. Its current Flagship Partners are Earthwatch, First Hand Solutions and Landcare Australia, with previous partners including The Carers Foundation, Raise Foundation, and The Song Room.
