Youth Week 2021 is fast approaching, with a week of festivities planned from April 16 to 24.
Youth Week is an opportunity for young people to express their ideas and views, act on issues that affect their lives, and create and enjoy activities and events.
As part of the celebrations, the seventh annual Youth Expo Gunnedah will be held at the Gunnedah Town Hall on Wednesday, 21 April from 10am to 1pm.
The annual event is a joint initiative of Gunnedah Shire Council, Gunnedah Youth Interagency and NSW Youth Week. It features a range of stalls and events to help support students on their life path.
This year, Gunnedah Shire Council is extending an invitation to local businesses to be part of the Youth Expo.
Council Manager of Cultural and Community Services Charlotte Hoddle said this year’s event was focussed on helping young people build career pathways.
“The Gunnedah Youth Expo is a day to celebrate young people and their contribution to our local community,” Ms Hoddle said.
“This year in addition to the events planned for the day, we are inviting local businesses, training and service providers to exhibit their services.
“This is a great way to showcase the broad opportunities available to young people here in their hometown.”
Businesses and organisations wishing to register for the event should complete the online form located at https://gunnedahyouth.wufoo.com/forms/zlri0v90dwnic0/ by Friday 5th of March.
Exhibiting at the Youth Expo is free and a trestle table and two chairs will be provided. Powered stalls are available upon request.
