Blacktown City Mayor Tony Bleasdale OAM said there were many great events and opportunities on offer to young people during Youth Week.
“Blacktown City is proudly home to more than 60,000 people aged between 12 and 24 years of age, and this age group is rapidly growing,” Mayor Bleasdale said.
“Our young people make incredible contributions to our community – whether that be in education, arts, or in the sporting arena.
“This Youth Week, I encourage young people to come out and celebrate their contribution to their community, share their ideas, speak up on issues that concern them and enjoy the events Council has to offer.”
Youth Week 2022 will run from April 4 to 14, with this year’s theme being ‘It’s up to you’th’.
Council’s free events in Blacktown and Mt Druitt will feature free food, live performances, art, activity stalls, carnival rides and music.
