2015 NSW YOUTH WEEK KICKS OFF

MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has today welcomed the launch of the 2015 NSW Youth Week, the largest annual youth participation event in Australia.

 

Youth Week kicked off with a forum in Parliament House titled; Connecting Culture and Community – It Starts With Us, which will bring together 120 young leaders from across NSW to discuss strategies for overcoming barriers to youth community engagement and participation.

 

Mr Marshall is encouraging young people to get involved in the hundreds of unique events taking place across NSW to celebrate Youth Week 2015 from 10-19 April.

 

“This year will see Youth Week offer a wide range of activities and events including Aboriginal heritage tours, artistic workshops, and seminars on leadership, learning cyber safety and youth employment opportunities,” he said.

 

“Last year more than 3,770 young people were involved in conceiving, planning, promoting, managing and evaluating 750 activities and events, which were attended by almost 90,000 young people.

 

“Youth Week highlights the breadth of interests, skills, talent and involvement of young people aged 12 to 25 and I am delighted that the NSW Government is able to continue to support such a dynamic program of events and activities.”

 

All Youth Week activities and events are listed on the Youth Week in NSW Events Calendar at: www.youthweek.nsw.gov.au/events.
