Youth Week Planning Workshop

Places are still available at ‘Youth Week 2017 Planning Workshop’ at Warilla 9th November 2016 at Southern Youth & Family Services.

This workshop has been designed to support Local Government Areas and Youth Week Committees to organise sexual health activities for Youth Week 2017. It will provide hands on, fun activities around sexual health that you can use with young people any time.

This workshop is free, lunch and refreshments will be provided.

NSW Health has partnered with the Department of Family and Community Services for Youth Week 2017. Now in its sixth year, the partnership aims to build greater engagement in the youth sector to help improve the sexual health of young people in NSW. Sexually Transmissible Infections are increasing in NSW with 70% of Chlamydia notifications are young people. The need for LGAs and youth organisations to focus on sexual health is now higher than ever
