BC Youth Week, happening May 1-7, 2018, is a week of fun, interactive celebrations intended to build a strong connection between young people and their communities.
BC Youth Week events have included youth award ceremonies, advocacy campaigns, service projects, entertainment events, sporting competitions, educational forums, and other events to showcase, educate and empower youth in our communities. More information, including a sample of the activities that take place during BC Youth Week, can be found on our member’s websites.
Wherever Youth Week is celebrated, the idea behind it is the same: Young people are important and need to be recognized in a constructive and positive manner; their contributions need to be acknowledged and celebrated.
