Youth Week 2023 is officially running this year from April 20th-30th, and the Hills Shire is getting ready to celebrate with a wide range of events.
The theme this year is ‘connect, participate, celebrate’ – a theme that the Hills Shire Council has attempted to emulate with each event.
“We are very excited to host a number of events in The Hills this Youth Week,” Mayor Peter Gangemi said. “I’m proud that Council is supporting this special week, which is dedicated to thanking our youngest residents for everything that they do for this region.”
The events have been organised with the help of local youth groups and people such as the Hills Youth Army and Sydney Hills Youth Ambassadors Rebecca Yu and Hayley Mogilin.
All events that the Council are holding for Youth Week are free to attend, though some require registration. A list of activities can be found below:
