Lake Macquarie City Council to support ten events for Youth Week 2020

A free skateboarding workshop is just one of 10 events Lake Macquarie City Council will support next month as part of Youth Week 2020.

Not-for-profit group Belmont Neighbourhood Centre is hosting the April 2 skate night at Charlestown Skate Bowl to encourage young people to learn new skills and gain confidence on a skateboard.

Council provided $1000 grants to Belmont Neighbourhood Centre and other local Youth Week event organisers to help them get their ideas off the ground.

Lake Macquarie Mayor Kay Fraser said Youth Week, held 1-9 April, was an opportunity for young people to contribute ideas, engage in community events and celebrate their abilities.

“Youth Week is a great opportunity to celebrate the contribution young people make to our community,” Cr Fraser said.

“We’ve allocated funding this year to support a diverse range of events, from creative workshops to fitness and sporting activities.”

The Charlestown Skate Bowl event will include technique training, skating games and music. It will run 5pm – 7pm.

Youth Week 2020’s theme is Speak Up. Be Involved. Get Connected. Have Fun, with each event created around these ideals.

Other Youth Week events include an ice-skating disco at Hunter Ice Skating Stadium on April 3, FEST Forward a youth creativity event on April 4 and a fitness day with Southern Beaches Junior Rugby League club on April 9.

“Youth Week’s goal is to encourage active involvement of our young people through accessible and informative community activities,” Cr Fraser said.

“Most importantly, I hope our City’s young people can join in and have fun.”
