National Youth Week (NYW) 2017 will run from 31 March to 9 April and it is the single largest celebration of young people on the Australian youth calendar.
This year's NYW Ambassador is Darci Miller. As a volunteer, Darci will play an important part in guiding and promoting the week of events and chairing the NYW Planning Committee. The theme for 2017 is 'eco-futures'.
NYW in Western Australia is presented by Propel Youth Arts in partnership with the Department of Local Govermnment and Communities (DLGC).
More than 100 events are set to take place throughout the State, many of which have received a NYW grant provided by DLGC and the Australian Government's Department of Education and Training.
