Youth Week

NSW Youth Week is the largest celebration of young people across the state. Annually, hundreds of young people aged 12 to 25 years participated in local youth week activities right here in Forbes. Youth Week will be held from Friday 16 - Saturday 24 April 2021.  A month long celebration including a number of local events and activities will be organised in partnership with Forbes Shire Council and the Forbes Youth Action Team to celebrate NSW Youth Week, showcasing the theme Together more than ever!  You can also stay updated by visiting the Forbes Shire Council or Forbes Youth Action Team Facebook page here.
