Young people invited to participate in County Youth Week events | Advertiser Wollondilly

Young people from Wollondilly are invited to take part in this year’s Youth Week events.

Youth Week will be celebrated from April 4-14 this year, with planning underway for a series of activities to take place across the county.

Events in Wollondilly County will include Battle of the Bands, an Extreme Sports Expo, a Manga and Mocktails afternoon in the library, and a short film competition.

Wollondilly Council is calling on local young people to be part of the Youth Week Working Group to contribute their ideas on what they would like to see happen as part of the festivities and have their voices heard on current activities and future for young people in the Region.

Wollondilly Mayor Matt Gould said young people could be involved as much as they wanted, whether it was just emailing with their suggestions, helping to plan and organize events or even volunteering at Youth Week events.

“I can’t wait to be part of the action for Youth Week 2022,” said Cr Gould.

“This is a great opportunity for us to celebrate the important contribution our young people make to the county.

“I encourage our young residents to get involved in any way they can to make the most of the opportunities available during Youth Week, whether that’s signing up for Battle of the Bands, producing a short film or by volunteering at events.”

Youth Week began as an initiative of the NSW Government in 1989 and has since grown into a celebration of young people in all states and territories of Australia. It is organized by young people, for young people.

Young people aged 12-24 who want to get involved or share their ideas should email youth@wollondilly.nsw.gov.au.
