SA Youth Week
SA Youth Week (SAYW) is the state’s premier event for celebrating and connecting the state’s young people.
SAYW 2020 ran from 17 to 26 April 2020. Check back later in the year for details about SAYW 2021.
Effect of COVID-19
The COVID-19 outbreak affected the 2020 program and many activities could not be held as planned. Some events were adapted and went ahead.
Organisations that received SAYW grants can still deliver their activity under COVID-19 safe arrangements until December 2020. For example, support for young people can now be fostered in new ways such as by hosting online chats or streaming content promoting wellbeing or connection.
SAYW 2020 grant recipients and/or organisations that had planned to hold an event are advised to read the updated guidelines (PDF 182.4 KB), and contact DHS regarding the status of their initial project and viability of alternative proposals.
