About

Queensland Youth Week (QYW) is an annual celebration of young people aged 12 to 25 and the positive contributions they make to Queensland communities.

Plans are now underway for an even bigger QYW in 2020. 

Queensland Youth Strategy

In 2017 we released the Queensland Youth Strategy following the largest youth consultation ever undertaken for a Queensland strategy. Over 1,200 young people told us what was important to them.

From that feedback we developed 4 Building Blocks which form the heart of the strategy:

  1. Supporting our most vulnerable young people
  2. Housing
  3. Healthy futures
  4. Educating into employment.

Young people also told us they want to continue to have input into matters that affect them. We launched the Youth eHub in 2017 as a platform for young people to engage with government.
