About BC Youth Week
Youth Week is an internationally celebrated event that aims to recognize the positive contributions youth make in their communities and to celebrate the valuable work youth do all year round. Since its inception in 1995, BC Youth Week has grown to include over 30 municipalities and non-profit organizations in BC.
The BC Youth Week Committee coordinates the logistics of Youth Week in BC; however, the youth themselves help to plan the actual events that take place in each area. This is a very unique aspect of Youth Week, as one of BC Youth Week’s goals is to encourage youth to take an active role in their education, recreation, and personal development.
