Victorian Youth Week will go digital for a special, month-long event in 2020.
After being postponed earlier this year due to coronavirus (COVID-19), Victorian Youth Week 2020 has a new date and a new format.
A special month-long Victorian Youth Week will be held from 15 November to 15 December 2020, with all events to take place online and in line with coronavirus restrictions at the time of the activity.
This approach responds to feedback from young people and the youth sector about the importance of providing safe spaces for young people to build social connections and have fun to support their health and wellbeing.
In early 2020, the Victorian Government announced grants of up to $2,000 for 110 community organisations, local councils and schools to engage young people aged 12 – 25 years in the planning and delivery of diverse and inclusive events and activities as part of the annual celebration.
The new month-long format recognises the significant challenges communities across Victoria have faced this year and will provide more time for young people to redesign and adapt events and activities to take place online.
For Youth Week grant recipients
Your organisation should have received information from the Equality and Youth Branch, Department of Premier and Cabinet, about the changes.
