Queensland Youth Week (QYW) celebrates and recognises the talents, achievements, and contributions of young people to their community, our state, and the world around them.

In 2024 QYW is running across 7-13 April.

Youth Week activities aim to encourage young people to explore their interests, develop their talents, and connect with their communities in meaningful ways.

If you’re a Queenslander aged 12-25, check out what is happening and come along to an event all about celebrating YOU!
