Council calls on Wollondilly Youth to get involved in Youth Week 2022
Posted on: 28.02.2022
Youth Week will be celebrated in Wollondilly from 4-14 April this year, with planning under way for a range of awesome activities to take place across the Shire.
Youth Week began as a NSW Government initiative in 1989, and has since grown to be a celebration of young people in every state and territory across Australia. It is organised by young people, for young people.
Events in the Wollondilly Shire will include Battle of the Bands, an Extreme Sports Expo, a Manga and Mocktails afternoon in the library, as well as a short film competition.
Council is calling on local young people to be a part of the Youth Week Working Group, to contribute their ideas about what they would like to see happen as part of these festivities and have their voices heard about current and future activities for young people in our region.
Young people can be involved as much they want to, whether it is just by sending an email with their suggestions, helping plan and bring events together, or even volunteering at the Youth Week events.
Mayor Matt Gould said, “I’m looking forward to being part of the action for Youth Week 2022.”
“This is a great chance for us to celebrate the important contribution that our young people make to the Shire.”
“I would encourage our younger residents to get involved in whatever way they can to make the most of the opportunities available during Youth Week; whether it is signing up for Battle of the Bands, producing a short film, or volunteering at the events.”
Young people aged between 12 and 24 who would like to be involved or share their ideas should send an email to email@example.com
