2014 Northern Territory National Youth Week message
Minister for Young Territorians, Hon Peter Donald Styles MLA
The Northern Territory Government is proud to support National Youth Week (NYW), which will run from 4 to 13 April 2014. As the Minister for Young Territorians I acknowledge the importance of this event and the positive impact it continues to have on young people in the Territory.
The 2013 NYW was an outstanding achievement in the Northern Territory with almost 10,000 young people attending events and activities during the 10 days. I anticipate this success and the number of participants will grow once again in 2014.
The 2014 slogan for NYW is ‘Our Voice. Our Impact.’ This initiative represents an excellent opportunity for young Territorians to showcase their talents, organise events and activities and contribute to the community.
Young Territorians who participle in NYW have the chance to share what is important to them, to develop new skills and enhance their knowledge in an enjoyable and safe environment.
I am excited to have Ms Amy Hetherington on board as the Northern Territory NYW 2014 Young Member. Amy is a 23 year old Media, Marketing and Communications Consultant and is passionate about story telling. The NYW Young Member is available for interviews to promote NYW across the Territory. To get in contact with Amy, please contact the NYW Coordinator via the Youth NT website.
I highly value the effort and coordination that goes into NYW across the Territory each year and I am eager to see inspirational ideas exhibited in 2014. I encourage all young Territorians to hold or participate in events and activities for NYW.
