National Youth Week

National Youth Week (NYW) is the major Australia wide celebration for young people. Each year on the Southern Downs youth organisations and services partners hold a week full of activities, for young people aged 12-25. In previous years we have had movie nights, skirmish, digital media workshops, art and DJ workshops, Great Race Southern Downs, concerts, skate workshops, yoga, pilates, and gym passes... just to name a few.

Find us on facebook Southern Downs Youth Service  and keep checking for updates on how all of the planning is going. We hope you come and join in the events and activities.
