Groups of local young people from different backgrounds come together in each location to look at the needs of their community and then make grants to other young people to run activities to benefit that community. The young people are also responsible for raising funds to add to those contributed by government, community and private partners.
Through the initiative, the young people are be supported to develop skills and their achievements will be promoted locally and around the state.

The Youth Affairs Council of Western Australia (YACWA) is the peak non-government youth organisation in Western Australia. We operate primarily as a human rights organisation that seeks to address the exclusion of young people in a rapidly changing society.
YACWA advocates for young people’s varied needs at local, State and Federal Government levels whilst working to engender and enhance positive community attitudes towards young people.
YACWA strongly believes that ‘young people are experts in their own experiences’ and is dedicated to ensuring their equal access to participation in community decision making processes.
