Youth Week WA 2019 - Nurture The Now

The theme for this year, as decided upon by the Youth Week WA Planning Committee, is Nurture The Now.

Nurture The Now places significance on the present tense, and what we are currently conquering. The theme celebrates sustainable growth and encourages young people to validate their achievements and progress right now. By nurturing the now, we affirm the potential for young people to create a positive impact during their current stage of growth.
