Youth Week 7 - 15 May 2022
To celebrate Youth Week 2022, Stratford District Youth Council (SDYC) has a full week of fun, low cost or free activities for local youth to get involved in. These are opportunities for young people to come together and enjoy what Stratford district has to offer, all while celebrating their place in our community and learning more about SDYC.
Youth Week 2022 runs from 7 to15 May 2022 and the theme is “Our voices matter, we deserve to be heard.”
SDYC will be kicking off Youth Week early with their On the Bus event on Friday 6 May. Co-Chair Keisya Gunawan says, “Our On The Bus event includes a trip to New Plymouth to play mini golf and laser tag. These events are always a bunch of fun and we expect this one to be no different. Tickets are only $10 and can be purchased from Eventbrite.co.nz. Make sure you secure your seat on the bus – you don’t want to miss it!”
The week-long celebration includes two free movie sessions at TET King’s Theatre, a free pool party at TSB Pool Complex.
