Shoalhaven City Council is involved in developing youth services, facilities and activities.

We promote the participation of young people and showcase their achievements across the Shoalhaven.

Youth Week 2022

The NSW Youth Week program will take place from Monday 4 April to Thursday 14 April 2022. This week focuses on youth led activities that celebrate the valuable contribution young people make to our community and offer a great opportunity for young people to re-connect and have fun!

To support this, Council’s Youth Week Grants 2022 will provide small grants up to $1,000 to community members, groups and organisations that include young people in the planning and delivery of events and activities that support and enhance the lives of young people during Youth Week.

Grant applications close at 5pm Wednesday 22 December 2021. Grant applications can also be made by email, mail or in person to the front counter at Council’s Nowra City Administration Centre during business hours.
