Youth Week 2024


Express. Empower. Get Loud!

Youth Week is a national celebration held in April each year organised by young people for young people aged 12 – 24 in communities across NSW.

Youth Week is an opportunity for young people to express ideas, diversity, and views, create and enjoy activities, and celebrate talents and contributions in our community.

It’s a big year for music at Waverley’s Youth Week events. Check out the program of FREE events and workshops below.
