Youth Week

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, 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.

National Youth Week is an opportunity for young people to:

  • share ideas
  • attend live events
  • have their voices heard on issues of concern to them
  • showcase their talents
  • celebrate their contribution to the community
  • take part in competitions
  • have fun!

Byron Shire Council have been delivering high quality Youth Week Events for 20 years.  Past Byron Shire Youth Week programs have included:

  • Band Competitions
  • Skate Competitions
  • Youth Forums
  • Arts Competitions and Exhibitions
  • Dance Parties
  • Youth Film Competitions and Festivals
  • Training
  • Conferences and more.

If you are a young person living in the Byron Shire and have an idea for Youth Week or want to get involved contact
