Youth Week 2014

13 May 2014

Youth Week is being celebrated between 17-25 May 2014. This year's theme is 'Be the Change'

What is Youth Week?

Youth Week is about recognising the amazing contributions and achievements of young people in New Zealand.

The week inspires us to value, support, and affirm the diversity of young people in our society.

Ultimately we want Aotearoa/New Zealand to be a country where young people are vibrant and optimistic through being supported and encouraged to take up challenges.
