National Youth Week


National Youth Week

National Youth Week is an annual, week-long celebration of young people (aged 12–25) throughout Australia.

It's a joint initiative of the Australian, state, territory and local Governments. It's an opportunity to express your ideas and views, and to act on issues that affect your lives. It's also a chance to have a lot of fun.

Each year, all over Australia, events are planned and organised to celebrate and recognise the contribution of young people. In 2016 more than 23,000 young people from across Victoria participated in National Youth Week activities.
