3 April, 2019 –
Young people of Stafford, Queensland Youth Week (QYW) is your time to celebrate all of the positive things and boundless energy you bring to our community.
The theme for this year’s QYW is ‘unlimited’ – I encourage you to look towards the future and be inspired by the limitless possibilities ahead.
The week is already off to a great start, with all promotional materials featuring the vibrant artwork of seventeen year-old Merrimac artist, Scully Sommai, winner of this year’s QYW artwork competition.
During QYW, the state government is supporting events that aim to advance young people with activities that align with the Queensland Youth Strategy Building Blocks:
1. Supporting our most vulnerable young people
3. Healthy futures
4. Educating into employment.
In 2018, there were almost 200 events held across Queensland. In 2019 we’re aiming for more. Find out what’s happening around our state this week at https://www.csyw.qld.gov.au/campaign/queensland-youth-week/events
