The growth and development of youth bands form a microcosm of the Ministry’s Strategic Plan for Youth Development. Youth bands provide healthy alternatives for youth at the community level.
The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture, through the Division of Youth, gives annual grants to Youth bands that are registered with the Division of Youth, to assist with Youth Band Strengthening. Interested bands may make requests to the Ministry of Youth Sports and Culture, Division of Youth. Grants are provided at the discretion of the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture.
