Purpose of the ACTIVATE Fund:

Activate is Sound Connections’ investment programme for London-based Music Education Hubs to develop and embed youth voice in their work. We are keen to support and invest in Hubs that already have a demonstrable commitment to, and practice of, youth voice and to support activities that need financial support to meet their young people’s needs.

What is on offer?

  1. £2,000 towards your project
  2. Mentoring sessions with Youth Voice specialists
  3. Two free places on the Essential Youth Voice training course in academic year 22-23
  4. A supported process throughout the lifespan of the investment cycle
