Centacare Evolve Housing: 2022 Youth Week Event

by Brighton Community News

Youth Week is the largest celebration of young people within the Tasmanian youth calendar, providing an opportunity for young people aged 12-25 to
be heard, celebrated, and to have fun. The 2022 theme, ‘Youth: Next Gen’ recognises Tasmania’s future – the next generation of young leaders, changemakers, influencers and visionaries who are shaping our State.

Centacare Evolve Housing’s annual youth week event was first created in 2021 through local consultation from community and the want to celebrate our talented young people who contribute to local community wellbeing.

“There is a lot of stigma about youth and we wanted to do something positive and challenge the view,” said Elise, Centacare Evolve Housing Community Wellbeing Officer.

Centacare Evolve Housing partnered with 11 local youth and community services in area to provide access, exposure, and opportunity to fun healthy activities to get involved in.

The BMX bikes were a great hit and a special thanks to Southern City BMX for providing the free bikes and lessons.

Over 110 young people braved the icy weather and wind to join us and participate in activities by Southern City BMX, Bridgewater PCYC, Deadly Choices, Bridgewater Library, Create Crew, The Australian International
Youth Association, Kombi Krew, Kutalayna Collective, Adventure Patch, CFC and many more.
