If you are planning on running an event or activity for NYW 2017 the Office of Youth Affairs can help promote it. The Office will add your event on our NYW Calendar of Events (to be released in March 2017) and also promote your event on social media.

All registered NYW events can request free merchandise from our Office. The 2017 merchandise available is reusable water bottles and sunglasses. T-shirts are also available to event organisers.
Please note there is a limited amount of merchandise available for distribution. The Office of Youth Affairs will endeavour to cater towards your event based on the overall allocation of NYW resources.
