National Youth Week

National Youth Week is an important opportunity to celebrate the achievements, vitality and strength of young people aged 12 to 25 and to acknowledge their positive contribution to our communities.

We fund the Queensland Police-Citizens Youth Club (PCYC) to plan and deliver National Youth Week events and activities in partnership with other community organisations throughout the state.

National Youth Week is a joint initiative of the Australian, state, territory and local governments.

National Youth Week 2017

National Youth Week 2017 will be held from 31 March to 9 April 2017.

The theme is Be Bold Brave You.

National Youth Week Champions

We are looking for 5 enthusiastic young people, who represent the diversity of young Queenslanders, to be the 2017 National Youth Week Champions. As a Champion you will directly contribute to the planning and delivery of events through the Queensland Planning Group.

If you, or someone you know, are passionate about representing young Queenslanders and have practical experience in planning and organising events in your community, we encourage you to apply.

Nominations close at midnight on 13 November 2016.

Community Small Grants Program

The PCYC is coordinating a Community Small Grants Program and we encourage organisations interested in planning a National Youth Week themed event to submit an application.

Applications close at midnight on 4 December 2016.

Photo challenge

A fun photo challenge will provide young people with a supportive and empowering activity that visually expresses their ideas about the theme Be Bold Brave You

Young people can take and submit a photograph of a place, space or group which inspires them to Be Bold Brave You.
