Victorian Youth Week | National Youth Week | Youth Central

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 across Victoria to celebrate and recognise the contribution of young people.

Victorian Youth Week 2018 will be held from Friday 13 to Sunday 22 April 2018.
