The Borough of Queenscliffe supports National Youth Week and our local youth through the facilitation of targeted events and activities.
This year National Youth Week was celebrated from 5 to 12 April 2013. The Borough of Queenscliffe partnered with City of Greater Geelong to conduct a Skate, Skoot and BMX competition at the Skate Park in Point Lonsdale.
Young people are also encouraged to participate in the annual Kids Busking for the Kids event held on Good Friday.
This is a street busking event at which young buskers perform to raise money for the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
