Overview

Since 2000, National Youth Week has provided a celebration of the efforts and contributions of young people aged 12 – 25 in their communities. In 2018, a new chapter began with the first celebration of Youth Week Tasmania, funded entirely by the Tasmanian Government.

Youth Week Tasmania 2022 will be held from Monday, 4 April 2022 to Sunday, 10 April 2022.

The theme for the Youth Week Tasmania 2022 is 'Youth: Next Gen'.

The 2022 Youth Week Tasmania Grants Program is coordinated by Communities, Sport and Recreation (CSR) in the Department of Communities Tasmania.

Purpose

The Tasmanian Government aims to:

  • showcase the talents and skills of young people;
  • celebrate the contributions of young people in communities, in education and in the workforce; and
