SA Youth Week

SA Youth Week (SAYW) will be held from 13-22 April 2018. It is the largest annual event on the South Australian youth calendar.

SAYW showcases young peoples’ talents, contributions and achievements; promotes a positive image of young people; acknowledges the common interests of young people, as well as their diverse backgrounds and circumstances; and enables young people to express their ideas.

Although the name has changed from National Youth Week, the benefits and opportunities to highlight young people’s talents, contributions and achievements remain the same.

The theme for SAYW 2018 is ‘Your Future – Your Way’.

This theme highlights young people’s role in shaping their lives and, in doing so, shaping directions for South Australia. It emphasises the value of young people’s ideas, skills and resilience in local communities, and champions the benefits that their wide variety of unique backgrounds, interests, identities and perspectives can bring to us all.

‘Your Future – Your Way’ will inspire young people to achieve their goals in ways that suit their unique circumstances and needs, and highlight the myriad of significant contributions they can and do make to broad and complex social issues. The emphasis on taking action their way aligns with the SA Youth Week’s focus on young people being heavily involved in events.
