As one of Sport NZ’s commitments to address the inequities for women and girls, Sport NZ is investing a total of $3 million over three years to support projects designed to get more young women physically active and develop leadership opportunities through play, active recreation and sport.

In year one, two funds are available for investment specifically targeting young women aged 12 to 18.

The new investment delivers to the leadership and participation outcomes of the Women and Girls in Sport and Active Recreation Strategy  and will be split across two funds: Young Women’s Activation Fund  and Innovations for Young Women.
