Member for Kalkallo Ros Spence MP recently announced that Elevation Secondary College in Craigieburn was a successful recipient of the 2023 Victorian Youth Fest Grant Program.

The Andrews Labor Government has provided $2,000 in funding to help students at Elevation Secondary College celebrate R-U-OK day through various interactive activities and by encouraging important conversations about mental health.

Victorian Youth Fest is a month-long celebration in September, which provides grants of up to $2,000 to eligible organisations to host events, led by and for young people aged between 12 and 25. It provides opportunities to showcase talents, grow networks and to connect with peers.

Successful recipients will now share $200,000 in funding for 111 youth-led events across the state.
