City empowers future leaders through Youth Week

Media Release 6 April 2022

Young people in the City of South Perth can celebrate WA Youth Week with a range of fun, free activities from Friday 8 to Saturday 16 April.

This year, the City has put together a diverse program, from writing workshops to augmented reality games and immersive events.

The WA Youth Week theme is ‘Courage to Change’ and calls on young people to form their own opinions, shape decision making and enact change.

Mayor Greg Milner said the City of South Perth, which recently endorsed its new Youth Plan 2021–2025, was giving young people more opportunities to ‘be courageous’ and take an active role in their community.

“Our young people are our future. The City is aims to help our young people maximise their potential by providing opportunities for our youth to develop their capacity and skills and enhance their connection with their community,” he added.

“This year’s Youth Week events are, of course, all about having fun and trying something new, but they are also a way for young people to connect and learn more about the services and programs available to them.”

The City’s WA Youth Week is aimed at 10 to 25-year-olds and will feature Wonderland, croquet, a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party and prizes.

Young people can also make DIY eco products, take part in a writing skills workshop, download a free Magical Park app to use at various locations or join the Amazing Race, which is a joint initiative with the Belmont, Victoria Park and South Perth Local Drug Action Group.

All events are free, however bookings are required for some. To register or find out more, please visit the Youth Week WA events page. For enquiries please contact the City’s Youth Officer on 9474 0777 or email
