Supporting Local Youth

The Sapphire Coast Youth Development Fund has only one goal - to support emerging young talent in the Bega Valley region and help them realise their sporting and artistic ambitions.

Young people in this part of the state don't have the same opportunities available in the bigger regional and metropolitan areas.

The Fund offers financial grants and assistance for travel, accommodation and other related costs to attend training, competitions and other events outside the Bega Valley Shire.


We also support coaching and professional development workshops for youth within the Bega Valley.
