National Youth Week 2017

National Youth Week is an important opportunity to celebrate the achievements, vitality and strength of young people aged 10 to 25 and to acknowledge their positive contribution to our communities.

This year, the campaign will be held from 31 March to 9 April 2017 and the theme is Be Bold, Be Brave, Be You.

A number of free events and activities will be held across the region to mark the celebration, including movie nights, bubble soccer, a regional Instagram competition and a series of free skateboarding workshops run by Ownlife.
