ACT Youth Week celebrations in Capital

Young people aged 12 to 25 years will this week take part in youth focused events and activities across Canberra to celebrate ACT Youth Week.

The ACT Government is proud to support young people to develop and participate in events through the $20,000 ACT Youth Week Grants Program.

Congratulations to the 14 recipients of the ACT Youth Week Grants Program, I’m thrilled we received such diverse submissions and I look forward to seeing the fantastic initiatives during the week.

ACT Youth Week Grant recipients will be running events, including:

  • Bike maintenance project – Dickson College
  • Wellness Workshop – Headspace
  • Sports in the Streets – Multicultural Youth Services
  • Connecting Craft and Communities – Australian National University

The ACT Government will also host five free community events for young people and their families including bowling, ice skating, and movies.
