Spark is our theme for
Youth Week. Ignite your spark by having fun, learning and making your voice heard.
National Youth Week is an annual event celebrating young people across Australia. Youth Week in NSW aims to acknowledge and celebrate the positive contributions made by young people in our community.
The Youth Week theme for 2018 is
'Unity through Diversity'. We celebrate it here in Canterbury-Bankstown by inviting our youth to take part in a range of different activities and events. In 2018, Youth Week takes place from 13 April to 22 April, and our City has plenty to offer.
