Victorian Youth Week (formerly National Youth Week) is week-long celebration of young people (aged 12–25).
It gives you an opportunity to express your ideas and views, and act on issues that affect your lives. It also lets you have a lot of fun and celebrate the positive contributions young people make.
This year, events in Victoria will be organised to celebrate and recognise the contribution of young people.
Victorian Youth Week 2018 will be held from Friday 13 to Sunday 22 April 2018.
The Victorian Government is solely providing Victorian Youth Week grants of up to $2,000 to fund events that celebrate and recognise the contribution of young people to their community.
On 12 February 2018 the Minister for Youth Affairs Jenny Mikakos MP announce more than $218,000 in funding for 110 organisations to stage events across Victoria as part of Victorian Youth Week 2018.

Promoting your Victorian Youth Week 2018 event
To help promote your Victorian Youth Week 2018 event to young people, funded organisations need to use the Victorian Youth Week 2018 and Victorian State Government logos in all promotional material.
All media releases, newsletters, web based information and social media sites that you are using to promote your Victorian Youth Week 2018 event must include the by-line “This event is supported by the Victorian Government”.
You can also check out the Youth Central website in mid to late-March 2018 for full details of Victorian Youth Week 2018 events being held across Victoria.
