Deaf Children Australia’s Youth Grants Program recognises the ideas and achievements of young deaf people from all over Australia and highlights the positive contributions that young deaf people make to society.
Deaf Children Australia’s Youth Grants were established in 2000 with support from our philanthropic partners. Deaf Children Australia adds to this Victorian funding to make the Youth Grants available Australia-wide.
