LAKE Macquarie City Council will consider authorising more than $6500 in funding for Youth Week events in the city, including a youth skate, scooter and bike competition, a youth festival, and an expo.
Mayor Kay Fraser said young people were the future of the city.
“So it is important that we support Youth Week, which celebrates young people and their contribution to our community. These events will provide young people with an opportunity to express their views and have a bit of fun while collaborating together,” Cr Fraser said.
Youth Week runs from April 10 to 18. It enables young people to share ideas, attend live events, have their voices heard on issues of concern to them, and to showcase their talents.
