Youth Week highlights

The annual Youth Week in the City festival featured a dynamic program of arts, culture and sporting events from 31 March to 9 April 2017, including the Betty Makin Youth Awards

The City and Weave Youth and Community Services marked the start of Youth Week with the annual Fernside Festival – a skate and scooter competition, with live music and DJ, dance performances, interactive art exhibitions, food stalls and an expo of community organisations.


Youth in the city

If you're aged between 12 and 24 we have lots of ways to help you meet new people, try a new activity or improve your skills.

Our biggest line-up of events happens with National Youth Week each year – our launch festival, skate comp and the Betty Makin Youth Awards.

Youth programs in Alexandria, Glebe, Redfern and Woolloomooloo provide a cool space to hang out and have fun.

We also have some projects that are geared towards helping you get your driver's licence to improve your job prospects, among other projects for young people
