2024 Youth Week
Youth Week is coordinated by Ara Taiohi, with the support of the Ministry of Youth Development (MYD) - Te Manatū Whakahiato Taiohi and Sport New Zealand - Ihi Aotearoa. Events are designed to encourage young people (aged 12 to 24 years) to take on challenges, share ideas and focus on the positive aspects of being young. The week also recognises the youth workers, youth service providers, and others working with and for young people.
Youth Week aims to amplify young people’s valuable contributions to their communities by supporting them to design, deliver and evaluate all aspects of the week. We want Aotearoa to be a country where young people are vibrant and optimistic and are supported and encouraged to take up challenges.
Join syd this year for Youth Week - let us know if you have any great ideas of what we can do as a community to celebrate our Youth.
