Youth Week 2021

After Covid hit pause on the events of Youth Week last year, the 2021 festivities are ready and raring to go, as preparations for Albany’s youth to be celebrated across every inch of the city come to life. 

Running across April 9 to April 16, Youth Week is an annual state-wide celebration of the positive contributions young people make to our community.
