The Youth Week Grants Program is designed for young people to express their ideas and views, act on issues that affect their lives, and create and enjoy activities and events.
In line with state and federal government directives and information Youth Week 2020 will not be going ahead during the scheduled week of 1-9 April 2020.
Organisations that were offered funding have been given the opportunity to a host Youth Week event later this year.
Further planning is being taken on what can happen to support young people during this time. Online events and activities will be taking place during the week of Youth Week and will continue on afterwards. Please check back to this page for updates on how these will take place.
The theme of Youth Week is Speak Up. Be Involved. Get Connected. Have Fun, these ideals remain and will be celebrated throughout Youth Week in some capacity.
