National Youth Week

National Youth Week (or NYW) is an annual celebration of young people across Australia and means a range of fun and exciting events and activities are hosted around the Territory.

NYW 2016 ran from 8 to 17 April and was a huge success, with over 4800 young Territorians participating in over 70 events held across the Territory.

NYW 2017 will run from 31 March until 9 April. The 2017 theme is Dream Big!

If you're aged between 12 and 25 years make sure you get involved! NYW is the perfect opportunity to:

  • share ideas
  • attend events
  • have your voice heard on issues of concern to you
  • showcase your talents
  • take part in competitions
  • have fun!

Grant Round


The Grant Round for NYW 2017 is open now until 14 October.

Grants are available for individuals, groups, clubs, organisations, and businesses throughout the NT to run events and activities during NYW. These grants are offered as part of the Youth Engagement Grants Program (YEGP) which engages young Territorians through drug and alcohol free entertainment, youth development and leadership activities.

The NYW grant round has two funding opportunities; mini grants (up to $500) and major grants ($501 to $3,000). Major grants are online available to applicants that are incorporated or have the support of a sponsoring body that is incorporated.
