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 2021 will be held from Friday 30 April 2021 to Sunday 9 May 2021.

The theme for the Youth Week Tasmania 2021 is We've Got This!.

The 2021 Youth Week Tasmania Grants Program is coordinated by Communities, Sport and Recreation (CSR) in the Department of Communities Tasmania.
