    The Youth Digital Inclusion (YDI) project has been developed to respond to the digital divide experienced by vulnerable young people across our State. The Department of Communities has given YACWA a grant to distribute approximately 300 refurbished ICT devices to young people aged 16 to 24 in need. The majority of these devices will be smartphones accompanied by 6 month data packages. Young people will be identified through eligible community organisations who will apply on their behalf through a time-limited application process.
