Youth Week 2017 Poster

Youth Week 2017 comes to life this April, kicking off on the 2nd and running until the 11th with an exciting series of events and activities taking place in the Port Macquarie-Hastings region.

Youth Week events are planned by young people, for young people, and are all about inclusion, opportunities, creativity and fun. It is an opportunity for young people to express their ideas and views, act on issues that affect their lives, showcase their talents, celebrate their contribution to the community and create and enjoy activities and events.

This year’s Youth Week has a theme of 'Get Involved, Be Heard, Make a Difference', and the Hastings Youth Advisory Council (YAC) has pulled out all of the stops, volunteering months of their time to organise and present events that will engage and excite.

Events include: The Region Youth Music Conference (registration required) Youth Week Youth Opportunities Festival Youth Week Skateboard Competition Instagram Photo Competition Library Youth Week Events Waves & Melodies Festival Scavenger Hunt

All events are free and although youth focussed, everyone is welcome.

Youth week 2017 is organised by the Hastings Youth Advisory Council (YAC). The YAC provides a forum for young people to have a say on community issues that affect them and their peers and to provide input into Council's youth policy development... ... Instagram: hastings_yac.
