Youth clubs are to benefit from from a shared grant donated by Three Rivers Youth Council.
Members of the youth council have donated a £1,000 grant towards helping projects run by PHAB, Quench youth cafe, Rickmansworth and Watford District Sea Cadets and Watford Mencap.
Councillor Ann Shaw said:"The young people at the youth council take real care and consideration when making the decision as to how this grant is allocated.
"It is great that they are able to get involved with their own communities in this way."
PHAB was given £600 to go towards a week’s holiday for up to 20 local disabled teenagers and Quench youth cafe received £100 to pay for leisure equipment.
Rickmansworth, Watford and District Sea Cadets will spend their £100 donation on a laptop for training purposes and Watford Mencap was awarded £200 to go towards blackout blinds for its film club.
