find out more about N4YP:

Young people can apply for a N4YP Generation Grant, which provides them with money raised from their events, the grant also gives the young person the opportunity to visit Europe and show what they have managed to achieve with the money.

The ability to think and exercise your thoughts is a duty to be fulfilled not only for yourself but for those who came before you. They have faced the same childhood angst, teenage confusion and adult alienation, except we have a lot more where they had none.

Their goal is to celebrate the rise of talented young people, despite the inadequacy of their environments. To inspire and be inspired by those who are driven by their determination. To extend a hand and create opportunities.

"We are not a lost generation, nor will we be one to forget".
