National Youth Week


National Youth Week is the largest celebration of young people in Australia. Thousands of young people aged 12-25 years across Australia get involved in National Youth Week each year.

National Youth Week encourages young people to:

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

Youth Week also provides the opportunity for youth services, community organisations and groups to promote their service and/or organisation, group whilst supporting young people.

Small Grants Program

Blayney Shire Council coordinates the Youth Week small grants program. Council encourages non-government youth and community service organisations to apply for small partnership grants up to the value of $800. Youth Week is a great opportunity to work together, share ideas and establish partnerships with local services and Council for Youth Week. So let's come together to celebrate the National Youth Week.
