Youth Week

A very big thank you to all those who participated, contributed and enjoyed themselves at the 2019 Youth Week 

Connect - Share - Speak out - Celebrate!

10 to 26 April 2019


What is youth week?

Youth Week began as a NSW Government initiative in 1989, and has since grown to be a celebration of young people in every state and territory across the country.

It is organised by young people, for young people aged 12-24, in communities across NSW and Australia. Following the success of the NSW Youth Week program, Youth Week became a National event in 2000. National Youth Week is jointly supported by the Australian Government, State and Territory Governments and Local Governments.
