Adult Supervision

All projects need an Adult Supervisor. This is someone who is aged over 21 years and can support you with the organising and finances of your project. An adult supervisor could be a teacher, a youth group leader, or another responsible adult. Please see the Adult Supervisor information here.

  • Please remember; We want the idea of the projects to come from you, a young person.
  • Tell us why you are excited about your idea.
  • Tell us how your project will make a difference in your community or the community which you will be helping.

When your project has finished, your Adult Supervisor will ask you to write us a report with pictures about your experience of the project. This helps us to inspire other young people.

About the UK in the Burns Price Foundation Changemakers Initiative Grant Scheme

The Change Makers Initiative in Partnership with The Burns Price Foundation supports young people under the age of 19 from across the UK, with grants of £100 each to work on grass roots level ideas with art and science at the core of the social action project.
