Central Coast Council is celebrating National Youth Week, held from 16-24 April, with a wide range of events that will allow young people across the region to connect, build skills, show off their talents, be inspired - but most of all have fun!

The theme this year is 'Together More Than Ever', encouraging young people aged 12-24 to express their ideas and views, act on issues that affect their lives as well as create and enjoy activities and events.

Council Director Connected Communities Julie Vaughan said Council has collaborated with local young people and youth service providers to help create an incredible calendar of events.

"Youth Week is a great opportunity to shine a spotlight on the contribution young people make to our community and allow for their voices to be heard," Ms Vaughan said.

"What makes Youth Week unique is events are organised for young people, by young people, which helps build lifelong skills that assist with future employment opportunities, while simultaneously ensuring events on offer are what young people want and need.

"Whether you're a skater, creator, athlete or simply want to connect and relax with friends, there is something on offer for all ages, interests and abilities."

Throughout the week there will be music events showcasing our talented local performers and musicians - including the grand final of Discovered - as well as creative skills and skate workshops, fitness activities, a workshop on how to start a social enterprise to help kick-start young people's business ideas and more.

Council Administrator Dick Persson AM said Youth Week provides an opportunity for all of us to celebrate the many and varied contributions of young people to our community.

"There are over 50,000 local young people living on the Coast," Mr Persson said.

"We are committed to creating and providing opportunities for our young people to connect and access activities that are fun, showcase their talents as well as help them to build skills that they can use in the future.

"With such a great range of activities, events and celebrations taking place, I would encourage our young people to find out what's happening and get involved."

Oasis Youth Fest, Make Your Way and Create Youth Week events are funded through Department of Communities and Justice Youth Week 2021 Grant.
