Youth Week WA

Youth Week WA is an initiative that gives young people aged 12 to 25 years the opportunity to express their ideas, showcase their talents, have their voices heard on issues that affect their lives, celebrate their positive contribution to the community and most importantly, have fun.

Basically, it's a week long party right across WA where young people get to participate in heaps of competitions, events and activities and is the largest celebration of young people on the Australian youth calendar.

Every year during Youth Week the City of Gosnells celebrates the contribution that young people make to our community through a range of events and projects. Come celebrate with us in all that's on offer!
