One such program is the work of is the MYD or The Ministry of Youth Development - Te Manatu Whakahiato Taiohi which develops and promotes Active Youth Citizenship. This program is young people, aged between 12 and 24 years old, using their knowledge, skills and experience to participate confidently in their communities. The organization offers opportunity for youth to apply for funding on projects and ideas.  

"If you are a young person, a group of young people or an organisation that works in partnership with young people, and you have a great project idea that young people will benefit from, then have a look at the attached application form. There is no harm in just looking; you never know your project might just be perfect for this." -MYD
