Youth Week Tasmania

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 2018 was held from 13 April to 22 April 2018.

The Tasmanian Government allocated $22,750 for the Youth Week Tasmania 2018 Grants Program.

The Grants Program was coordinated by Communities, Sport and Recreation (CSR) in the Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPAC).


The Tasmanian Government aims to:

  • showcase the talents and skills of young people;
  • celebrate the contributions of young people in communities, education and the workforce; and
  • build the capacity of young people to engage with the broader community and develop practical skills through their involvement in planning and delivering Youth Week Tasmania events or activities.

The Youth Week Tasmania 2018 Grants Program closed on 20 December 2017.
