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 2023 will be held from Monday, 1 May 2023 to Sunday, 7 May 2023.

The theme for the Youth Week Tasmania 2023 is 'Acceptance'. The slogan is: Be Bold. Be You.
