Michael O’Brien MP, Member for Malvern, is encouraging young people within the Malvern community to take part in the Be Heard! grants program.
The Be Heard! grants program aims to increase volunteering for young people in radio with the opportunity to produce live-to-air shows and a career path into broadcasting through grants of up to $5000 to community radio stations to provide training and mentoring for young people aged 12 to 25.
As part of the Coalition Government’s commitment to young people, the Be Heard! grants program, highlighted in its Youth Statement, Engage, Involve, Create, aims to give young Victorians opportunities to learn practical skills in the creative arts while also increasing involvement within local communities.
