Shout out to Young Territorians


Are you or do you know a creative and motivated young Territorian who’s keen for an exciting challenge?

The Office of Youth Affairs is looking for ambassadors for National Youth Week (NYW) 2017.

Mental health advocate Pritika Desai was the 2016 NT Ambassador for NYW and was involved in planning, promoting and attending National Youth Week events and activities.

Pritika said “Youth Week provides the opportunity to bring awareness to issues that affect our peers and spark change in the community.”

Applications close on Friday 7 October 2016 and eligible candidates must be aged between 18 and 25 years, accessible by phone and email and available for meetings and media activities relating to NYW 2017.

Applications are also open for the NYW grant round until 14 October 2016, with grants being offered of up to $3000 for fun, creative and imaginative events to be held across the Territory.
