What was an annual, week-long tradition celebrating young people right across our community, Youth Week 2020 was post-poned... Until now!

Youth Week 2020 is back on the cards in Victoria and is taking place across a very special, month-long string of activities and celebrations from 15 November to 15 December 2020. 

The new month-long format recognises the significant challenges young people and communities across Victoria have faced this year and will provide more time for young people to get involved with activities and events that celebrate not just getting through 2020, but the enormous contributions young people make to the community each and ever day!

Over the next few weeks we are celebrating Youth Week 2020 at Youth Projects with a series of workshops and competitions with $600 in cash prizes up for grabs! Our wonderful Youth Advisory Group are taking the steering wheel and bringing you a host of workshops and competitions.

Art, Craft & Gardening Workshop (Friday 27 November)

It's time to get crafty and make your own Christmas wreaths, Spotify frames and the key to successful plant propagation as the ultimate gift! This is a free workshop and you can register here.

Mental Health Awareness & Self-care (Friday 4 December)

It's been a year like no other, so being aware of the symptoms of mental health and how to minimise its impact on your life is so important for young people! Join us to explore what to look out for and tips from industry professionals as well as self-care + mindfulness strategies and how to access support services. This is a free workshop and you can register here.

Storytelling Workshop & Winners announcement (Friday 11 December)

We're on the hunt for creative, young storytellers to share their experience of this year and what 2020 has meant to you in whatever creative or expressive style is authentically, well, you! There is $600 worth of cash prizes up for grabs for the most creative entries and stories.
