National 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!

Every April, Murray River Council celebrates National Youth Week, encouraging young residents to get involved and celebrate their contribution to their community.

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!

Once per year we also call for suitable local youth services or community organisations and groups to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) for funding towards an event, activity or project to be held during National Youth Week. Keep an eye on our grants page for more details.
